Every evening I put out some buggy nibbles (mealworms crushed in suet), sultanas and peanuts. This is a snapshot of who shows up.After a dramatic crash in their numbers starlings seem to be making a comeback. There are four that regularly visit the garden after many years of not seeing any.The starling was joined by a couple of female house sparrows.Of course the lovely male blackbirds always show up. They are fighting less now they have children to raise.Possibly the clumsiest bird around, a plump wood pigeon. They like to crash land at the tops of trees to reach the fresh buds, looking very precarious on the thin branches. I once observed one trip over a twig as it ambled around the garden.A stunningly handsome magpie. There was also a crow, but the magpie chased it off. It also has a bit of a love/hate relationship with the squirrel. Speaking of which …No photoshoot would be complete without Mrs Fancypants Squirrel getting a look in!
Also observed, but not adequately photographed; a robin, a great tit, a blue tit, and two collared doves.
