    Hi Mo, We have baby Sparrows everywhere and our Swallows arrived yesterday! No doubt they will decorate the m/h when I finish polishing it for P/boro.
    Cheers

    We have seen plenty small birds this season, usually just their beaks have been left, but on occasions our whole room has been decorated with feathers, pigeons I think.
    My wife likes cats.... I like birds; no contest!

    Haven't noticed any young birds around us as yet, we've been on a CL on the outskirts of Dumfries since last Saturday. I bought lots of bird food and fat balls to take home, there are some nice cherry trees near the van and wanted to hang up a couple of fat balls. But just noticed the fat balls don't have any nets on them, so will need to use them in the holder when we get home:Sad:
    There were 6 goldfinches outside the van yesterday, but no young ones.

    The sparrows have managed to evict the blue tits from their nest box :Sad: Although the sparrows are too big for the box the males are pecking away at the entry trying to enlarge it.

    However I can also see nesting material around the nest box on the shed - the nest box that was previously ignored so maybe some bird has decided it is a desirable residence.

    We got a pair of goldfinches building a nest, plenty of tits about and a great spotted woodpecker visiting the nuts daily. :thumb:
