Love is in the air……..

…… everywhere I look around!Okay, maybe not love but, by the way the birds are pairing up, breeding season is definitely around the corner!

I think the “cutest” couple has to be the Robins – he sits guarding the feeding station whilst she feeds on the fat balls, he even chases off the little Coal Tits who are only after a few sunflower seeds! When she’s finished, he then flies to a high branch & sings his little heart out.


It’s not surprising he’s paired off already, when his territory includes the best bird restaurant in town!

We also have 2 pairs of Great Tits, 2 pairs of Blue Tits, 2 pairs of Coal Tits, 1 pair of Dunnocks (who don’t stand a chance when the Robin is around!), and we now have a pair of Thrushes which I’m pleased about!

The Long Tailed Tits just arrive in a flock of between 7 and 11, you can tell they are very social birds and love company, and I’ve given up trying to work out the Blackbirds and who’s with who!

So when Spring arrives and the first little ones are being fed by their parents, I like to think I played matchmaker a little & helped them get together!
