Bird, wildlife and flower log, 28 October - 3 November 2013

Master Black has been enjoying the bathing facilities this week. He does seem to like to stand in the cold water first for a time, maybe he's getting used to it, before having a proper bath!

Another photo from earlier in the year. I've not had much chance the last few weeks to get out with my camera.

Nutty the Nuthatch was around lots this weekend. Sunflower seeds seem to be the current favourite over the peanuts. On and off the feeder and then to the bush to eat them. A lonely Goldfinch has been in too. They often hang around in pairs, but I didn't see another one. So I wonder if something has happened to it, or maybe this one is on its own. There are at least two female great spotted woodpeckers around at the moment who both like to eat the fat block and they don't hang around together! I don't know if any are the young ones from this year.

Squirrels - another week of hardly seeing one. I guess they are out collecting acorns, although they do usually like to bury these in the lawn as well as peanuts!
