Bird, wildlife and flower log, 14-20 April 2014

Hello :) well the bank holiday weekend has turned out to be a mix of weather. Sunday felt like a rainy dull day in November for most of it.

The Camellia is going over now, but this is a photo I took a couple of weeks ago when it was looking its best.

Last week was a great week for watching the blue tits. A pair is nesting in the roof next door. So while I am washing up I can watch them coming and going. Last week they were back to their usual tricks of steeling the coco fibres from the half wall baskets on the garage. Three years of blue tits nests as well as the blackbird getting in on the act this year is leaving them somewhat worse for wear!

The hole is small where they get in to the roof and if they have too much coco fibre they have trouble getting in. So they sit on the fence post and re-arrange it and then try again!

The thrush has been back this week, adding a bit more competition for the mealworms.
