nesting time

the birds in our back garden are going about the business of nest building,i put up a new wooden screening a few weeks ago which is at the side of the garage door,the black bird has decided to build her nest in it, our robin is taking the mealworms to his mate which is in another garden, the blue tit box has had a few visitors but early days yet,we have a pair of long tailed tits going in and out of the ivy, mrs black bird doesn't mind us at all, when we go to the wheelie bin, which is right underneath her nest and about head height 2ft away she never moves, put the mealworms on top of bin and they both fly on straight away, what a wonderful time of the year.

a new bird in the garden

will catch up with everyone's blogs over next few weeks, family problems have kept me away, mainly my dad being in hospital, things looking up at the minute so i can find time to start blogging again,got off early from work today to go and see dad, popped into the garage and saw through the window this bird on the feeder, rushed into the house for camera and hastily took a shot, not good i'm afraid but will post anyway, i think, by looking on the internet that it is a linnet.
