highlight of week

I saw these little chaps a few weeks ago on the grass beyond our house. So we bought a new feeder and some niger seeds and have now been rewarded

The most exciting birds we have ever had in the garden. I watched them feeding for about five minutes and then they flew off but returned later. Hopefully they will be frequent visitors now.

Our latest crop from the allotment

when they are this size you can eat them whole and very tasty they were too.

Hoorah for new, exciting birds and fabulous green beans!

What are those birds? Are they finches? They're gorgeous.

We had goldfinches a couple of years ago but haven't seen them since. I've got the niger seed all ready though!

The birds are eating us out of house and home at the moment! must be feeding the babies I think.
