    I believe that from 29th I can spend more time in the local countryside AND take a packed lunch!

    I’ve rinsed my flask & butty box and this afternoon while in the garden brushing the cobwebs off my boots, a Chiffchaff was singing in the hedge.

    pair of Siskin today along with male Brambling as well as our long-staying female Blackcap.
    We have Carrion Crow visiting the garden most days … other corvids are regular flyovers, especially Rooks with two rookeries nearby, but over the last couple of days Rooks have been in the garden and even on our feeders.

    Congleton: Somerset Close: ♂ ♀ Siskin – this is quite late in the year for Siskins in our garden, or perhaps we are just keeping a closer eye on the feeders.

    This week in my garden: Robin and Blackbird collecting nesting material.
    Also, yesterday afternoon I heard a commotion – the 2 resident Magpies were noisier than usual. The neighbour’s cat was edging towards their recently restored nest at the top of the tree. While watching them trying to distract the cat by flicking amongst the branches, just out of reach of the cat, 6 Starling flew into the same tree shortly followed by 4 more. Were they, too, trying to distract the cat?

    A robin on 03/03, the first since my resident robin departed this life in the January frosts. Is it a replacement or is it the other half of the breeding pair that spends the winter separately and has just returned wondering where its mate is? Only it will know!
