Location: Window Bird Count
Observation: Decided to stay in the warm today and do a garden count. I waited for the people around our garden to move away and started the half hour count. Within seconds the tree was re-swamped with birds back on their feeders. The Finches on the Sunflower Hearts, whilst the Tits were on the mixed feeders and the Fatballs. It was hard to keep up with counting what was on our tree with constant movement, but I tried my best! We had a shortage of Chaffinches, but more and more return every day and clear up the dropped seed with help from the Collared's and Pigeons. The new Song Thrush and Blackbird pair feed on the worms under our tree and move onto the seed afterwards. We used to have to sweep our path as it was covered in dropped seed daily, but since buying the Kennedy Bird seed, there seems to be alot less dropped and that dropped seed is eaten by the ground birds! So a quick thank-you to Kennedy Bird Foods for the no-mess seed it really does what it says on the tin!
