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!

New Feeder.......New Bird

Okay so the new bird wasn't on the new feeder but they are both new!
The bird is our very first Greenfinch in the new garden! I couldn't see any more so I'm not sure if this one is single or just went for a wander by itself!

Apologies for the quality of the photos - they were taken through the kitchen blinds!
The new feeder is a peanut one that I just couldn't resist!  It's hooked on the corner of our bungalow and in perfect view from the bedroom window!
A solitary Blue Tit has already visited it this afternoon - it's perfect for the "clinger on" birds and it's out of the way of the main feeders so the Starlings won't monopolise it!
So the view from our patio chairs is this....

What more could we want!?

You always seem to find most unusual bird feeders Sharon! How do you do it? (-: I like your new one very much and hope the birds do too.

Yes for the greenfinch... You will see more then, as Warren just said! Cool!! And for pictures taken through the kitchen blind, they are quite good. Your garden is beautiful!
