Not exactly a little bird but one taking its toll on the local populations. A Prize-winning shot of a Kestrel, captured today by my neighbour. You gotta put the time in to get a smudge like this...

Young Peregrine in my sister's garden at Ballaquark a fortnight ago. Eyeing up her 2 scrawny old cats...  

Here's the (almost) resident woodpecker (male) taken by my next-door neighbour. The holes he pecks are like .22 rounds. Quite audible while he's at it...

A couple of peregrines flew over yesterday. Looked like in flight training for the youngster. They were definitely playing in the thermals below us.

Visitors for food are now mainly hoodies, rooks, jackdaws, and a couple of herring gulls.

Sparrows and starlings, which used to come mob handed, have all but disappeared.

I'm still seeing an occasional robin and a couple of back-caps, which all love the pheasant berries (Himalayan Honeysuckle).

Not a lot else visiting nowadays.

As an update, half a dozen starlings visited this morning. Welcome!

There is a tree in the garden of our neighbour that was home to hundreds of starlings early this year. Sat in the summerhouse watching the parents teach the fledglings to fly and land was amazing

well that's good news, still no change in our garden though,,,,,,,,,sad.

we've tried all kinds of bird food. Problem is that the feckin crows keep going for it and frightening off any little bird. BB gun should dissuade them...😈
