Friday at the Flicks (Robin, Blackbird, Newts)

During the really cold weather the Robin was usually the first bird to appear in the garden but until recently it seemed to have been missing. Maybe it couldn't get a look in with all the corvids and Starlings milling around. The other morning it managed to find a clear slot.

Quite a few birds use my nursery pond as a drinking place and I have seen a Blackbird pick out pond snails to eat. Now it had decided that the floating Koi sticks I use to feed the tadpoles also make a tasty snack.

The sudden increase in temperature recently has warmed up the garden pond and several of the resident Smooth Newts are now evident.

Have a great weekend enjoying the sights and sounds of the wildlife around you.


  1. John, am struggling with slow internet but you really have built a miniature paradise in the garden. You will have to find a crested newt, they are stunning and it's years since I've seen one.

  2. Hello Adrian. There is nearly always something going on in the garden - saves a lot of petrol when the wildlife comes to me ;)


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
