12/365 The Bird Table Redux

The bird table is at the bottom of the garden, I can’t see it from the office, so I miss out on activity on it. I installed a Neos camera and bought a cheap tablet to watch it. I haven’t quite worked out how to get photo’s from it to my collection – easy with an iPad.

This afternoon has been an absolute hive of activity. I first noticed a solitary starling, stuffing its face. Normally, there’s a gang of them. Not only on it’s own, but it stayed for a long time, almost an hour. During that time it defended robustly against invaders, including another starling and a pigeon. At one point about a dozen starlings landed, it didn’t look as though they ate anything, but they had a massive bundle and flew of as abruptly as they arrived leaving a solitary starling. Was it the same one?

For a short period of time, it allowed a pigeon to share the table. Then the squirrel came, and the starling admitted defeat and they both flew off. I watched the squirrel for a few minutes. It was a bit nervous and would dash off, only to return seconds later. It made sure though that it had a good feed. What a fascinating afternoons viewing.

Just a note to add; I didn’t go for a walk this morning. It was chucking it down. It was also blowing a gale, but I don’t mind that, I quite happily go out when it’s breezy. Not going out twice in two days is seriously disrupting my weekly step count.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
