It’s been a cold week with temperatures hovering around zero for much of the time so I’ve only made two brief visits to the plot for a quick look round.
I often mention the birds that I see when I’m there and on Tuesday morning I saw a handful of starlings working their way along the grass verge at the top of the plot.
I have in the past also mentioned birds that I see out front at home. This time last year the block of flats where I live was surrounded by scaffolding whilst the roof was re-tiled over the following four months or so, and it wasn’t surprising that the birds keep away. Thankfully they’ve reappeared since, and during the past couple of weeks I’ve seen blackbirds, blue tits, crows, magpies, pigeons and robins.
This coming weekend, 24 – 25 January, it’s the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch which I always enjoy doing even though I rarely see many birds, let alone any interesting ones. Depending on the weather I may do it at home or on the plot.
Happy bird watching, and have a good weekend!
