Given how mild it is at the moment (12°C and glorious sunshine!), the larger birds have returned to the upper mountains….but despite a mild spell, it is still winter after all, and without much food around, I put out some seeds and grains a few days ago which the birds have thoroughly enjoyed.
As I was scraping up the mess today, this fellow flew down to the clothesline and kept squawking at me, so I used Deodar seed-pods as a plate and put the left-over scattered seeds and grains onto that.
………How cool is this for a wild bird…..!
Happy gardening 🙂
