Every Autumn I wait for the blackbirds to reappear. They stop singing in August and then disappear for a few months. Last year it was quite late on in December before they returned but this year they were a bit earlier.
Mr Blackbird is very fond of mealworms. He does not seem to mind the dried variety.
But Mrs Blackbird found these red berries and had a great feast. The only reason there are some left is because she was too heavy for the smaller branches. I was so pleased to see her eating because I had planted berry bearing plants especially for the birds.
Mr Magpie is not too fussed what he eats.
Mr B is also partial to some suet pellets. We have also been visited by a robin, greedy starlings, blue tits and some goldfinches. No sign of the wren so far this year.
