Does anyone know where spring is? cos it sure aint here!
Yesterday we had lovely sunshine, and a pair of Bluetits, were "viewing" my bird box. They seemed very interested, flying back and forth between it, and the apple tree, poking their heads in, but not quite having the courage to go right inside. I watched them for ages.
Today, we're back to a biting cold wind, and flurries of snow! no sign of the Bluetits :cry:

    We have snow and it has covered everywhere!! Luckily the OH had filled the bird feeders. We had a pair of house sparrows move in to one of our bird boxes, I was so happy seeing as how house sparrows are very rare now. If anyone see's spring can you tell it to hurry up in arriving as I'm fed up with Winter and I want it to bugger off now!! :(

    The crows have been in their nests for about 4-5 weeks now, noisy things! The sparrows have moved back in to the arch about the same time and a pair of blackbirds were chucking leaves around this morning. The waterfowl have been feeding locally for 3-4 weeks and will be off north soon. The pigeons are doing pigeiony things, there's only one thought on their minds! I have seen a wren around the front garden, probably finding a space before the robin moves back, he's the one in charge round here. There are some all brown birds (fares/buntings?) which I haven't got a name for yet, they want to move in on the sparrows. I'm sure there is a woodpecker around although I haven't seen it yet. Next door has two new cats so things may change?

    It snowed non stop, all day here yesterday!! Today we have a bit of sunshine :D but still a biting cold wind :roll:
    We get a bouquet (or is that just when they're in flight?) of pheasants, in our garden, there are five or six females and two males. They are beautiful, but boy, do they eat a lot :shock: They're costing me a fortune! The cat just ignores them, maybe they're too big for him, because he's a really keen hunter. Even the fact my Westie chases them at any opportunity, doesn't stop them coming back for more!
