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 email@example.com for more information.
The jackdaws have been keeping me amused during the past week and four of them are coming regularly to my feeders at various times during the day.
Since my last blog shortly before Christmas, the weather of course turned much colder and so bird activity at the feeders increased dramatically.
With the darker mornings and some foggy mornings this past week, the birds have been arriving slightly later at the feeders and bird table. Some of the days have been very chilly and the birds have been eating more than they have done over the past months.
The days are definitely colder and there have been a couple of frosts in the past week and the last couple of days have been much colder, so activity at the bird feeders continues to be brisk.
The extra suet log that I have been hanging in my cobnut tree has certainly been put to good use by a variety of birds in the past week.
In my last blog I talked about the suet log which I had placed in my cobnut tree to give the smaller birds up to and including starlings, the chance to have some suet away from the larger more greedy birds. The going rate for the suet log is about four days and the starlings have certainly been making use of it.
