I submitted my results from the bird count from the other Sunday.

It's a shame I couldn't do the count yesterday. I had more birds than ever. Chaffinches, Goldfinches, Starlings, Blue Tits, Coal Tits, Great Tits, House Sparrows, Black Birds Male and Female, Song Thrush, Robins, Wren, Collard Doves, Pigeons,

They all seem to hide on the day of the count.

I even had a green finch in my garden this morning. The first time ever. I haven't seen the long tailed tits for a while though. Will they ever come back again.

At the moment my bird table is out of action. I have to weather proof it. So I took all the feeders off and washed them all and refilled them and stuck them in my fruit trees and lilac. The birds are going to have to wait a few days for a treat of meal worms and dried fruit and the squirrel will have to wait until I put some more nuts out on the table for it to eat.
