Some of these photos are a bit blurred as there was so much action at the nut nets. If you click on them, they will enlarge, so you can do a head count. I think there are 10 or 11 Blue Tits in the top photo for starters . . .
It was cold and windy here yesterday. I was amazed at the number of birds visiting the nut nets - the garden was a hive of activity, with birds taking their place in the queue, and going from nut-net to branch, or branch to nut-net, or down to the ground. I also put out a handful of rolled oats (I have a sackful) for my Robin and the Blue Tits and Chaffinches who visit the kitchen windowsill. Normally one handful will suffice, but yesterday I have to put four lots out. I know it was windy, but the wind was blowing the oats in against the window. These were very hungry little birds. It was as busy as it was in the coldest of the winter weather in January. At one point the long nut net was absolutely heaving with the colony of House Sparrows who live behind the barge boards on our house. Now you see why I can never take part in the RSPB garden bird count!
