A couple of months ago I saw 2 Bull finches in the garden never seen them before and probably never seen them again.

Hello Townie
We rarely see Bullfinches. On a daily basis the Woodpeckers come and feed. Recently Western Power came
to change our electric pole. I said it looks OK to me and the gentleman said I will show you when we take it down.
Slightly down from the top it was hollow, the woodpeckers had made a nest in it. The helecopter checking the poles had noticed it.
I thought we would not see the woodpeckers again but are working on the new pole.
Natures great, lets look after it.
Gerald.

Got quite an assortment of birds around here. Regular visitors are Red Kite, Buzzard, kestrel I also saw for the first time a Merlin a couple of weeks ago. At night I can hear the male and female Tawny Owl.

Visiting my place this time of year are Blue and Great Tits, Dunnocks, Hedge Sparrows, Wrens,  Great Spotted Woodpecker, Black Birds, Robins, Jays, Jackdaws, Magpies, Starlings (still here),

There are Badgers near by and a few Foxes. Not seen a Hedgehog for many years. Lizards basking in the summer months and occasional Slow worm.

Edifi, you really know summer has arrived when you see dragon flies. Have you ever been to Heaver Castle?

Hello Twm
The feathers I would like to see go on this forum are the pink and yellow stripes on the front page.
Got any ideas how to remove them.

Has anyone ordered one of these bird packs that are advertised on the tele for free? I'm thinking about it but is it a catch and you have to sign up to sponsor something or other.

I went there once when working nearby. It was the month of June and the dragonflies were around, young fish in the lake too. It reminded me of an enchanted garden. Such a beautiful place.

The days are lengthening slightly, although still cold. I am starting to hear a bit of bird song. The Jays and the Jackdaws are squabbling too, probably over nest sites for the spring.
