Garden Birds in Cold Cornwall

17 Mar

A bitter Easterly wind is battering us all again with snow already up-country and coming our way, in the far South West,  tomorrow. The bird feeders have been very busy as if the birds know what’s coming and are stockpiling the food. We had to refill a second time today.

There were Goldfinches, Greenfinches, Blue Tits and Great Tits, Sparrows, Dunnocks and Pigeons, Blackbirds and Rooks as well as the ones I managed to catch on camera, shown below. It’s a pity it wasn’t the RSPB Great Bird Watch today!

    What handsome feathered friends you have. The first one just made me smile from ear to ear. 🙂

    Stay warm. Loved your shots.

    BTW: We are NOT going to cozy up to a bowl of meal worms tonight. Just sayin’ . . .
