We were sorting through our tree pots on Sunday in preparation for next Saturday’s NGS open garden event and were about to move the trestle …..
Phil spotted her just in time …
We should have some new blackbird chicks very soon!
Prior to discovery, we had been watering with the hose so she’s had a daily drenching and still she remained. Phil has already named the chicks (answers on a postcard please) but there will be no Rush to return your entries!
Our tit box has got new tenants. Last year the wasps got there first and we had a wasp nest to deal with and no birds. These two have been very busy and we spotted them bringing pieces of grass home. I have a square suet cage-feeder just beneath the box and fill it with dog hair after brushing. The birds emptied it very quickly last year and it makes for a very cosy nest.
