Birds are back !

We feed the birds all year but when there is a mass of berries etc. they are not frequent visitors !

Last couple of days when temp. has dropped such a pleasure to see them back on the table. Autumn has arrived I feel !

We don't feed the birds all year, there are plenty of insects and bugs for them to feed on through the summer and now the hedgerows are plentiful (teeming even) with fruits and berries. We will only start to feed when the birds have finished their natural stocks and I agree though, autumn is on it's way

Birds

We have rain today, the first for a very long time. The birds are loving it. Don't feed the birds here as there is so much available; we have a metre or 2, wide perimeter which has numerous grasses, bushes with seeds and this year I have a lot of thistles.
I always have water for the birds though.

Like Yummy we have an enormous variety of insects flying and wandering around. Despite changing farming methods here there is still so much more insect life, and wildlife of all sorts, than I ever saw in the UK.

Birds

Accepted wisdom here is to feed 'em all year whether they need it or not!

Maybe I phrased it wrongly. Of course we have loads of goodies for them to eat in the garden. The difference being when they realise "time to put on a bit of fat" back they come. Just love it when they arrive back in numbers to the tables.
We back on to a lake so water not a problem.

we're not supposed to feed the birds here till the bears have gone to sleep (December) so you don't attract the wrong type of 'wildlife'!!

We have a tree in the back garden full of berries at the mo and we get little flocks of tiny birds come in. Lovely to see, but sends the cat wild.

starlings moved in

The colder weather has had the starlings roosting back under the eaves, and it's oddly comforting to hear them shuffling about, safe and warm at night.
