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.
Here at the Bird Food Centre in Grimsby we are still open, still fulfilling customer orders but also respecting the government guidelines with regards to social distancing.
When the country awakens on the morning of Friday 8th May it will mark the 75th anniversary of the end of World War Two in Europe. The guns finally fell silent after many years of carnage and war. It was a time for the whole nation to celebrate and look forward to the future.
We two armchair naturalists are fortunate insofar as birdlife is concerned. From the windows of our tiny cottage we can see much activity.
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.
