Wow I’m behind with this. Ok so wednesday was more house sorting. I spent the day pottering around the house organising things and painting furniture. I also removed some of the spiders that seem to think the house belongs to them!
Our first visitors were the fledging blue tits and they continue to visit daily, we’re also getting great tits, wood pigeons, starlings too.
I took these photos on my little bridge camera. My D7000 has unfortunately been retired permanently with a very expensive fault. As soon as the house expenses shrink a little I’ll start saving for a replacement.
Anyway, the bottom half of the garden is essentially a tiny meadow with all the native grasses and flowers growing in it.
The starlings seem to love it.
The local starling population seems to be even bigger than I first thought. In the evenings it’s especially obvious as they all gather on the roof-tops before taking flight for the classic starling murmurations that are so visually stunning.
Since I’m back at the family home today I will do my best to get up to date with 30 Days Wild. Keep an eye out for the next few posts.
