After a seemingly fallow period for birds in the garden, today saw a riot of activity. Maybe it's the changes of weather, this morning being fairly mild and bright. There were the following of note.

  • Blackbirds, male and female further stripping the Pyracantha of berries.
  • A Robin having mid-air battles with a Dunnock over rights to the fat ball feeder – that's him rather splendidly pictured above.
  • A Song thrush also interested in the berries – more on thrushes tomorrow.
  • A fat wood pigeon scoffing berries too, pictured below.

  1. Thanks. It’s quite a good example of the genre, for sure. Very sleek feathers.
