Spring is such a wonderful time of year, isn't it?

I love how the birds are singing so loudly and trees are now all green and luscious again.
We have a pair of magpies nesting in our garden :) They're beautiful birds.

Springwatch starts on Monday I think!
Anyone else excited? :D

I love this time of year too :)

We have magpies visiting the garden - they're lovely birds (I love all corvids)& very clever, but they've frightened away the coal tits and long tail tits that were eating from the seed-feeders which isn't ideal. I'm currently not putting out any bird seed at all to discourage them so the smaller birds come back...I think I may be fighting a losing battle though :D

Aww yeah.. we used to have blue tits feeding in our garden quite a lot but I've not seen them for a while.
Of course that may also be because we have a very high number of pigeons who come to our bird table and eat all the seed within about half an hour! We tried stopping putting out for about 2 weeks but as soon as we put it back the pigeons returned! Hope you have better luck than we did!!

Are they feral or wood pigeons? I've never much been taken with pigeons but I recently took a lost racing pigeon in for a few days and fell for him in a big way, he was a lovely little fella and now I'm wishing the wood pigeons who sit in the field at the back of the house would come down to say hello...at least they'd leave the dangly bird feeders alone if I scattered seed on the ground :) Whereas the Magpies seem to be able to get the bird feeders onto the floor and then decimate them all over the lawn! It doesn't matter how I tied them down they still get them off! :D I'm hoping the little birds return...they're a constant source of amusement and very therapeutic to watch :)
