Baby Birds at the Well

Fledgling coal tit in Arthur’s Court

We’ve had to put in a noise complaint with Mother Nature ~ due to the volume of chirping coming from newly fledged and baby birds. The worst culprits are a band of delightfully fat and fluffy coal tits as they bounce around the garden looking for food, sometimes joined by a group of long tailed tits. Thankfully they have found the aphids on the Rosa rugosa. One or two are also interested in a dip in the pool in Arthur’s Court but it’s a little too deep for them. They will no doubt find the shallower water…

The rook chicks are still calling for food from their parents who bring them carrion and bread (not the best choice) which they regularly soften in the water of the rill. Also calling are the baby blue tits in the nest box in our potting area. Both parents respond tirelessly with insects and grubs. We do our best to keep things quiet for them.

The blackbirds are collecting the last of the holly berries. Unfortunately these are on the end of the twigs just out of reach. Just a little help to collect them in a pile which they can access safely…

  6. How delightful:)
    Birds are in abundance here on east coast Australia too
    So many flown to the coast escaping the bushfires
    We had a visit from 18 hungry ducks yesterday
    Such a joy to see them waddling around our garden
    Eagle hovers overhead & countless bright rainbow lorikeets dart thro the trees
    The cockatoos have now left but will no doubt be back in the Springtime
    How blessed we are to have these heavenly messengers 🙏💖🙏

  7. How lovely for all you lucky people in earshot ! I find birdsong the most powerful tool to de-stress from a busy life. I imagine the birds feel really safe in the quietness of the gardens right now and I wish them all a long happy life!

    I like the singing of bird 🦅 especially black birds singing
    All the best and greetings from Lisa
