238/366 A mish-mash

It was a rough night. I awoke at around 0300, had trouble getting back to sleep, only to be awakened again by a cat being sick. That was it then, couldn’t get back to sleep. I was in two minds whether or not to go for my morning walk. But, as usual I’m glad I did. It was cold, a very clear sky, so it was lovely to be out.

Every morning I top up the bird tables (two of them) with a mountain of food and make sure that the feeders are topped up, then it’s back in with a sneaky eye on the bird tables to see who turns up first. Over the course of a week it’s a toss up between the starlings and the pigeons. I must admit, I would prefer to re-position the bird feeders two of them are hanging off a tree and the other two are really up against the fence. The sparrows do use them, but I get the impression that they would be happier if they were all hanging off a 4-way feeder out in the open.

The wagtails are back. I was concerned when we put the garden furniture out that we had frightened them away. They have changed slightly, they prefer down the bottom of the garden, but I was watching them this morning, and they were particularly bouncy. I interpret that as them being happy, but of course I don’t really know.

By the end of the day, the mountain of food has gone, but there is always residual, so the birds don’t starve. I’ve just been watching a pair of magpies. They have a bad reputation, but they are a lovely looking bird, and it is nature, so I don’t mind. I am so pleased to see the sparrows using the bird feeders. They really are a delight to watch. If I could do things right, I would get another camera to watch the feeders. The first one, aimed at the table is a delight.

I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of the butterflies they are about, but not very common at the moment. Hopefully, the wild patch will develop and cause more of them to appear.

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.
