Not much to comment on the bird activity today as the weather has been so dark and depressing, and then in the afternoon the rain came again! 😦
I have seen one Goldfinch couple at the sunflower hearts today, they seem to be regularly visiting which is nice. 🙂
The news of today is that I am all out of Mealworms! The Blue and Great Tits have been going mad for them! It was been entertaining to watch them swoop down to snatch a worm and then fly off with their quarry!
Twice I have seen the Great Tit couple pass a worm onto each other. If one finds the worms first, he/she then goes to their other half and beaks the remainder of the worm to them. I think it is a lovely display of endearment. 😀 I even saw the Blue Tit couple do the same, it made me sigh an *awww*. 😀
I am also happy to report that I saw the Dunnock, with his fat tummy today, he seemed relaxed hopping about the undergrowth. 😀
The mealworms have been a roaring success! I saw a Pigeon in my caged ground feeder today, happily gobbling up the worms, and even the ingenious Magpie was spotted sneeking his beak under the cage and stealing a few worms! 😀
I have ordered a shipment of live mealworms from website: Livefood UK. People have said that they deliver the next day, so hopefully they will and the birds can get more mealworms. 😀
