Oh What a Sky!!!

I managed to get this photo the other evening..nearly gave my self heart attack as i had to run up stairs to get my camera but it was well worth it.
Got a bid fed up yesterday so hubby took me to the garden centre and treated me to 3 new nest boxes and other treats... can't wait to see what takes up residence i'm hoping it will be either the Robin or the Dunnock and Blue or Great Tits in their little homes.


Well it seems that the fish have survived the winter i am pleased to say and with no ill effects, my Cockatiel was quite chirpy this morning too doing a bit of necking with his mate.

I've printed off my counting sheet in readyness for the BIG GARDEN BIRDWATCH for the RSPB this weekend 30th-31st Jan Everyone is invited to spend just one hour during the weekend to count the birds that visit the garden, never joined in before so i'm quite looking forward to it.

Wow - what a sky!!!! Well worth a near cardiac arrest to get that on film - the bird boxes look super too - the year before last we had a little blue tit family in one of ours - it was so lovely to hear all of the chicks chirping inside - they got quite noisy lol. Glad all of your fish survived - let's just hope there's no more of the White stuff still to come - hugs Shell xx

Hi Hunnie.
WOW, that sky is amazing, breath taking..
Hope you get some,little twitters in ya boxes, we had black birds, but if you went near the boxes the mum would dive bomb you, funny really but the kiddies would not go near it, lol..
Fish look great, but how do they survive...
Cockateil, how sweet, love to hear the birds, you will have to let us know if anything twitters in them...
Take Care hun

We have two sparrow terraces that so far haven't housed sparrows but blue tits and great tits who seem to prefer them to the boxes meant for them. Odd as everything you read tells you they won't nest in a box where the hole is too large - ours obviously haven't read those articles!
