Garden bird activity

The House Sparrows took all the feathers we put out over the course of a week, the week before last – they were in the garden ages before they took them. On Friday we had a Long-tailed Tit on the peanuts for a short while. Last Thursday a male Blackcap had a bath in our ground water bowl, and the following day brought his wife along as well!!

This morning [2/5/2015] around 7.15 a heron flew right through our garden very low. We also are getting Siskins on and off on the sunflower hearts, also a Great Spotted Woodpecker has now decided she prefers them to nuts now! There is a crow’s nest 4 gardens up, the male sits high up in the tree, and throughout the day will dive-bomb any birds in all the gardens going down the road!

    WESTFIELD WILDLIFE has been created for Westfield residents and visitors to submit news and photos of any wildlife observed in the Parish. We also aim to post our own sightings and topical wildlife news as often as time allows.

    WESTFIELD PARISH lies just to the north of the coastal town of HASTINGS in E. Sussex (south east UK), and a MAP of the area covered by the Parish is here

    To REPORT A SIGHTING, with or without photo, click on the tab 'Post your sighting' just below the Westfield Wildlife banner to see how.

    To COMMENT on an existing posting, or to read others' comments, just click on 'LEAVE A COMMENT' or 'COMMENT(S)' below that post. Clicking on a post title will also reveal the comments box below the text, as well as any existing comments.
