A few shots from 10th March 2018

Another day at home with poor weather.  The birds are starting to use the new perches but I need to find a better way of fixing them.  Pigeons, Jackdaws, Rooks and Magpies are too heavy and are either knocking them down or moving them.  Here are a few shots on the perches which I’m still not happy with so will rethink it over the coming months.  I also need to sort out the problem of rats.  They have taken up residence due to the seed that’s falling because of messy birds.  I’ve seen where they are going so will have sort some traps or poison to eradicate them.

There is a flock of at least 10 Siskin that are coming to the feeders at the moment

I have also updated the Home Page slide show as I didn’t want it displaying a location map, so I remove location from the images.
