Robin, Erithacus rubecula
Blue Tit, Parus caeruleus
Ever since we moved into this housem we've had trouble with the kids of the estate. Thet used to sit and hang about on top of the roof. Francis replaced the roofing felt 3 times. These days the shedis used by birds, and whoever else needs shelter. Inside, there are lots of quartered fence posts. These were to be the "retaining walls" of the raised beds, which never got buit because all OUR efforts to do so were killed when we found the raised beds flat on the ground, thanks to the local youths.
I'm not sure if I will keep them, and use the 'quarters' or use railway sleepers.
House Sparrow, Passer domesticus.
Greenfich, Chloris chloris
He's taking advantage of those few moments of Sunshine!
LEAVE YOUNG BIRDS BE!!
Please, do not hamper a young bird's life by picking it up, and taking it home with you. It is calling its parents to help them in locating it.
After fledgling from the nest, the parent birds will keep feeding it, and look out for it, until it will be able to look after itself.
And the reason you cannot see a parent is because of your own proxomity to the young bird. And while you are ebating if or not you should take the bird home, you keep the parent from giving it well needed nutrition in the form of a meal!
