15th April 2023 – Home

I seem to be missing the excitement of spring as I have had very limited opportunity to get out and about in recent weeks. So, it was quite comforting to see a few birds through the window from my lounge this morning, in particular two jays that were gathering nest making materials.

I wish I had invested in better double-glazing (or was it my lack of skill to not capture this shot any sharper?)

I’m glad I spotted this robin which I’ve been hearing both day and night

Cheeky blue tit on the feeder


Nice to see the greenfinches back in decent numbers

Buzzard over my suburban garden

Although it was not left in peace for long

In addition from my window I’ve seen herring gulls, lesser black-backed gulls, house sparrows, dunnocks, coal tits, great tits, blackbirds, starlings, carrion crows, jackdaws, wood pigeons, collared doves, magpies and even a peregrine on the church spire.

Hopefully, I shall soon be able to see the real joys of spring now that chiffchaffs, willow warblers, sand martins, swallows (and soon swifts) are all arriving at this exciting time of the year.
