Let Spring Begin!

There was a lot of small-bird activity in the garden yesterday. Here are two of the pictures I managed to take (through the window, I’m afraid, so not as sharp as I would have liked).

Coal tit
Plenty to say for myself…


I bought some sunflower hearts a few days ago, to see if goldfinches liked them as much as I’d heard. Within five minutes, they had attracted a siskin: a first for this garden!

I didn’t have a camera with me at that point, but I’ve managed to take this photograph of a siskin* on the nyjer seed feeder. They obviously enjoy eating that too.

I’m afraid the picture was taken through glass, so the quality isn’t of the highest, but I’m hoping for more opportunities.


*To add to some that I included in a previous post: Visitors.
