  • Sundays garden birds

    I really was fighting the wind trying to get these shots as the bird feeder was really being blown around. Obviously not as hard as they were having. Was really rough over here yesterday with gale force winds

    Lovely to see these, Peter.

    All four images are perfectly sharp. Looks like the tits are making quick work of your suet blocks.

    I know what you mean about the weather. Trees down in my area during the night. Made getting to work hard going today.

      Thanks Garry

      Yes suet block do go down quick but I am finding peanuts seem to be going down really quick at the moment. Seed as always but the peanuts really are going fast and they did not seem to go down as fast in the past. There was a few trees down but I was pretty lucky as I used main roads this morning ( main roads Guernsey style ) so did not have any hold ups on the way.

          That's interesting ! I tried making them some time ago, but the birds didn't take to them. We have fussy birds here

            We did for a while but gave up and went back to shop brought ones. Lot of mess and the birds do prefer the shop ones

            I find our birds to be very fussy. Buy suet balls from one shop and they scoff them. Buy them from another and the sit and rot.
