What a grey day! Yesterday it rained most of the day, partly that fine drizzle which you cannot see but soaks you in a few minutes interspersed with heavy downpours. I will admit the ground, and my pond, were desperate for water so I shouldn't grumble too much.
I was able to stay indoors but wildlife has to keep up the daily round of searching for food so all the usual feathered visitors were still visiting the feeding area.
How is a bird supposed to eat when all the seeds have stuck together?
I'm sure he puts the tastiest seeds in the middle on purpose!
Make way! I'm going to find somewhere dry to eat.
I do look handsome now I'm getting my adult feathers.
If you saw the Goldfinch on the bird bath yesterday where I mentioned it needed a bib to catch the drops of water then you can see it with a bib added by Glo of Porcelain Rose if you click here. Glo says, "The handy thing about this particular bibbity-bobbity-bird-bib is that it can be rolled up when finished with, and tucked under wing or beak (much like the Tommee-Tippee Roll 'N' Go bibs for humankind).". Nice one Glo.
No sign again of Hedgehog activity before I went to bed. Quite a bit of the food had gone from the dish by this morning so they may have moved to the late shift again.
For any of you who don't read Shirl's blog - Shirl's Gardenwatch, her new post Sh.. Hedgehog Napping has some great video of a Hedgehog in the new Hedgehog House. Well worth a visit. I haven't seen any sign of activity in my hog house as yet.
The down side.
