Starlings go for a Day Out

I sat outside with my bowl of cornflakes, enjoying a rare moment of peace in the early morning sunshine. In the uppermost branches of the tall conifer that overlooks our garden, were a multitude of Starlings. How many, I could not hazard a guess at, some were in full view while others were merely ghostly heads showing through the foliage.

Unusual Young House Sparrow

Here are a few pictures Of the unusual Young House Sparrow with white wing and tail feathers ( mentioned in previous post here )



This was a recently fledged young Sparrow, able to fly, but still reliant on the parent birds to provide the food.


I saw it for a period of about half an hour, but have not seen it again since that time.

My Garden Birds | This Week

Looking back at the week with my Garden Birds.

It's been a funny old week - weatherwise that is - one minute it's sunshine, then heavy downpours of rain, then the next thing you know, out comes the sun again. But wind, rain or shine, nothing on the weather front stops the birds from visiting the garden.

Reflecting on the past week, it has been a rare moment indeed to look out on the back garden and not see a bird of some description.
