    Not in the garden, but we do get them, so I cleaned the feeders and got them set up for the autumn and winter.

    Ours adore peanuts!
    we have a feeder just outside our kitchen window.
    They are really, really suspicio¨s, but absolutely wonderful to watch feeding there.

    Good prompt too to clean up all the feeders...thanks for that

    It was a good day with some decent light for a change, this is Montrose Basin famous for the vast numbers of Pink Footed Geese.

    I did the RSPB big bird watch thing... which lead me to realise we had dunnocks visiting. I'd always assumed they were fat sparrows...

    Also did the RSPB thing again this year. Recorded coal tits for the first time, but no sign of the usual hordes of long-tailed tits this year, not seen any in the garden at all this winter, must have been a bad year for them.
    Are y'oroight booy?
