This is just a short piece to talk about the setting up of a garden bird hide at my home.
I had recently been to a hide out in the Lincolnshire Wolds, and having examined the set up there, decided that I’d have a go at home. It’s taken a bit of sorting out, but the results are starting to come in.
It took a while for the birds to decide that they ‘liked’ where I’d put the new feeder, and that they trusted the perches I was putting out for them.
So far, I’ve had the usual suspects creeping in – Blue Tit, Great Tit, Robin, Chaffinch, Blackbird, Coal Tit, Starlings – and the usual crop of Wood Pigeons. Collard Dove is around but not had them on the table yet. I’ve seen other finches and I’d love it for Woodpeckers to arrive. Most years I get a cuckoo in the garden – and it would be amazing to get a shot of one of those.
