The Early Bird Gathers the Peanuts

Two mornings running one of the earliest bird visitors has been a Magpie arriving before 6 a.m. to gather any left over peanuts which were put out the previous night for the Hedgehog:

Mrs Great Tit is spending long periods on her nest looking after the eight eggs:


As well as the pair of Stock Doves there are several others which are daily visitors to the garden. For the first time I have a pair of Robins making several visits along with a pair of Greenfinches and a pair of Dunnocks.


  1. She must be getting on for halfway through now.

  2. i would love to see a magpie in person! i know parts of the US get them, but not here where i am in texas.

    1. TWG: They are intelligent and crafty birds, great to watch what they get up to.


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
