Allow me to show you our new garden….. the stubble field! No, wait, it’s still just a suburban garden in the middle of a housing estate – it’s the birds who think its a stubble field
I can honestly say I’ve never seen so many birds in our garden at any one time! We have a huge (70+) mixed flock of Linnets, Goldfinches, Greenfinches, Chaffinches and Redpolls (maybe Lesser, I’m not sure!).
The down side is that I’ve had to buy more feeders, more sunflower seeds and more nyger seed – but I’m sure I’ll cope
The last 2 days have been miserable… grey… wet & downright dreary so the mixed flock have lifted our spirits and certainly brought colour to the otherwise dull days
