Each morning they greet us with their song

If i were a blackbird i'd whistle and sing, Yes it is remarkable how many birds are around here so we hope to Photograph them and find out a bit about each one. We have constructed a birdbox and it is receiving many visitors of many coloured coats, but it is too late for this year.just as well to let it settle birdhouse.jpgin a bit until they feel safe with it

It is a state of the art luxury dwelling complete with bathroom in every room, not forgetting the wet room of course It also has a dry room  , A tv lounge complete with a 3d cinema. Two kitchens with the most up to date fittings and of course two master bedrooms complete with chambermaids and nests.

So far we have seen Great tit male and female, the Chaffinch m+f ,The robin, tree creepers, wrens, Thrush both Mistle and song. We can hear the Donnock There are wagtails Which reminds me 

 a few weeks ago ..As we drove into the yard two Wagtails were doing a magical love dance, we stopped the van as they were right in front of us about four feet from the ground, they were oblivious to us. We watched as they courted soaring up and adown in front us, Lost in their love for each other. Nothing else mattered. then they took off to the heavens to carry on thier Everydaymagic..

 Also blackbirds, Magpies, Kestrels Goldfinch Skylarks,Snipe plovers the list goes on so It will be full time job to get some pictures..
