New Home!

We have finally moved into our new house, after just over a week of packing, cleaning, working, unpacking, more cleaning – I’ve come to the conclusion I hate moving!
The new home is lovely and the back garden is fantastic!  Its quite a mature garden with lots of shrubs & bushes.
It has a narrow path leading you all the way around the grass to the back of the garden through more bushes and ends up at a shed which is covered in ivy!
I would like to say it’s a haven for birds but we’ve had 2 different cats hiding in the garden so far :-(
We have got our priorities right though, and after an hour of being in the house on the first day, we decided unpacking can wait – the feeders must go up in the garden first!
So far, we’ve put up the coconut, seed feeder and the house.
These are all just in temporary positions until we get sorted.
After just 4 days, the House Sparrows have found the house!
The Starlings have discovered the coconut!
A couple of Coal Tits have been helping themselves to the Sunflower Seeds, Blackbirds have been rummaging around in the tree bark under the shrubs and a Dunnock has been underneath the seed house picking up any bits that the Sparrows throw off.
We’ve also put up a nest box at the side of the shed in the hope that a Robin might take an interest (especially with all the cover there is!)

I’d forgotten how noisy Starlings & Sparrows can be having not had them in the garden for a year – I have actually missed them!  Hopefully, once more feeders and a bath have been put in the garden, there’ll be plenty of photos to be taken!
