Irish Birds Blog


Wednesday November 8, 2017. 

It was a beautiful day – chilly – only 3 degrees celsius but with bright sunlight all morning.

Last week Jim and I bought some Bird Feeders for our garden. It is time to get closer to nature and where better than in our back garden.

We have resident Robins living in the Beech Hedge and I knew they would be a bit put out with this open invitation to all birds in the area to come and feed on nuts and seeds. The poor little coal tits and blue tits are being chased over the wall by the Father Robin. I call him Maxwell. There is another Robin standing guard on the compost bin and another on top of the Silver Birch.

in spite of their protests and threatening behaviour, there is continuous feeding at the feeding station. Blackbirds, Thrush, various Tits, Sparrows, Magpies and Starlings come to say hello. The little Sparrow that came today told me his name was Clive. He lives over in Ivy Terrace near the train station. His Dad died in storm Ophelia in October leaving him to care for his Mother and siblings. He seemed really sweet.
