Young Robin - taken 2009 in back garden - Enniskerry, Co. Wicklow, Ireland


When was the last time you actually watched wildlife in your back garden?

Today? Last week? Can't remember? In today's modern world, we are finding it increasingly difficult to relax and take time out from work or family. This blog is to remind you all of the free entertainment that we can enjoy each and every day - WILDLIFE!

When I say "dinner", I actually mean "all day" buffet! The garden has been a hive of activity this weekend. I was going to call this post "Tits Galore", but I thought better of it :-)
I've had Great Tits, Blue Tits, Coal Tits, Chaffinches, Magpies, Dunnocks, Robin, Wren, even the Long Tailed Tit paid a fleeting visit (of course my camera was nowhere near me!) and the Bullfinch has been lurking in the background.

I love this time of year!

You'll be getting Siskins in soon Sharon! I must remember to get some of those fat blocks.

Nice selection Sharon. L T Tits never seem to stay in one place very long do they! How lovely that you have a Bullfinch lurking around the garden, they usually stick in pairs or a family, so keep your eyes peeled for the male somewhere.

Great to see so much activity, lovely photos! I find the Starlings tend to take over the fat puddings unfortunately.

Thanks for the comments guys - I'm quite lucky that we don't get Starlings in our garden so the food tends to last a lot longer! Not that theres anything wrong with Starlings of course.
