It has been a relative photographic drought for me over the last few weeks as you will have seen from the content of my postings. Well after tomorrow, I am hoping that I can get out and about with my cameras again.
50sq m of turf arrived today and once that is down tomorrow, we are going to take a bit of time off from the gardening.....at last.
With the breeding season over, we are starting to see more birds back in the garden, with increasing numbers of Blackbirds, Sparrow, Dunnocks, Tits and the occasional Woodpecker. Apparently, there was a beautiful Green Woodpecker on one of the feeding stumps the other morning after I had left for work.
Which brings me to some findings from the BTO that I received via email this week.
Apparently, Starlings and Song Thrush sightings at our garden feeding stations here in the UK are getting less, while Great Spotted Woodpeckers sightings have seen a four fold increase. I would cetainly agree with the first part of the statement in the case of my own garden.
For the full picture of how our garden birds are faring, I recommend you take a peek at this link which will tell you all you might want to know.
