Busy day today doing other tasks – still managed to keep one eye on “Chez Walter” feeders. Very early visit by Coal Tit (Parus ater), to early for me and too quick for me to grab my camera and get a shot of him/her. These little birds are very quick, quick to land on the feeder, quick to get a sunflower seed and quicker to scapper with the seed to a place where they can eat it in safety.
The regulars were in force today, 4 Woodpigeon (Columba palumbus), several squawking Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) fighting over the small fat pellets and the stately pair of Collared Dove (Streptopelia decaocto). The feeders or rather the water feature, a pump, was graced by the visit of an old friend, Robin (Erithacus rebecla).
