Day 29 – Garden birds

Not much time after school today to spend on wildlife so my Random Act of Wildness was to watch the birds in my garden.

The Pigeons are now sitting on their third nest, after abandoning the first not long after the strong winds. They made a second in the fir tree which was predated by Magpies, now they are back using the first nest again.

We have plenty of Blue tit and Great tit fledglings and a few Goldfinch, although one was recently taken, I presume by a Sparrowhawk which I have seen flying over the garden.

The House Sparrows have done well this year with at least 6 fledglings between to sets of adults.

I’m sure we have more nests and fledglings in the garden as I can hear little noises coming from deep inside the laurel tree, ivy and the clematis so I’m hoping to see more fledglings in the coming days and weeks.
