Bird Food Blog
Welcome to the Haith's bird food blog - featuring posts from the team & special guests. If you'd like to share your nature notes with our readers, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I have a surprise visitor to report this past week with the sighting of a lesser spotted woodpecker on my peanut feeder.
Over the past four blogs, I have been giving an account of the birds in my garden and have talked about the feral pigeons, the sparrows and wood pigeons in particular.
In my recent blogs, I have been talking about the birds in my garden and particularly the feral pigeons. Here in Kent that has been very little rain during April up until the last few days and I was finding that the seed tray birdbath for the pigeons was having to be filled at least twice a day.
On this glorious spring day, I am sitting by my pond. Now and again the breeze floats the exquisite scent of the bluebells over to me and I've just noticed that a fern has generously seeded itself in a perfect nook between rocks at the back of the pond. Nothing quite like a free plant unless it's horse tail of course!
Nature is oblivious to the current pandemic coronavirus which is affecting the world's human population, in a way that we could not envisage some months ago. Whilst handshaking high fives, hugs and socialising are off-limits to us, nature is exactly the opposite.
This is my third armchair naturalist blog for Haith's. Last week I tended to concentrate on the larger birds in the garden so it seems only fair that the smaller ones have their turn this week.
