859 – Time at the bird table

One of the things that I am trying to get in to the habit of doing is my daily one-off collection of weather data from the devices I have set up in the garden. Here are today’s figures (changes in the previous 24 hours);

The next thing I do is check the hanging feeders. It seems that the main users, the sparrows are using them, but not at a high rate, both feeders are at least three quarters full. No need to top up at the moment.

Normally, I put a couple of sets of cable ties around the birdtable to stop the pigeons getting at the food as they will sit there and devour it. I prefer that the starlings get at least some. I topped the table up with seed and mealworms.

I was washing my hands when I saw the two Magpies bouncing along the patio, stopping at the base of the table to have a feast of the seed being discarded by the nearly a dozen starlings that were now acting as a bit of a rabble on the table, taking off in different directions when they realised I was watching them. then sitting on the fence, watching before diving back on to the table.

The Sparrows had arrived at the feeders first, more sparrows that there were feeding slots. They are impatient little so and so’s buzzing their friends trying to push them off the perches. Luckily there was more than enough for them all.

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.
