Who will be king of the ground feeder?
Collared Dove or Magpie?
(No sound on this one)
Earlier in the week I showed photos of the fat ball rain as a Rook attacked the feeder. Here you can see just why pieces were flying all over the place. The Rook was having problems balancing for two reasons. There was a blustery wind but also if you look closely at the large photo here you can see it has one deformed foot. I often saw this bird at the feeders last Spring so it seems to be coping well.
Finally one of my favourite visitors - a Goldfinch tucking in to Nyjer seeds.
I hope you get some decent weather this coming weekend so you can enjoy watching the antics of the wildlife around you.
