Winter has come back to us here on the fen's! But to brighten up our day we now have these beautiful little birds that have finally found the feeder, filled with the Nigar seed. We had one bird show up 2 day's ago, this morning I saw 3 on the feeder.

They're lovely! And so colourful. They must be fun to watch too.

They really are a beautiful little bird. I am so pleased they found my feeder.

That's a great photo - they don't sit still for long! The only good thing I can find about this cold blast is the birds flocking to the feeders to be fed - ours are getting through huge amounts of seed and fat. Much twittering too!

We also have had allot more birds in the garden. Today apart from the goldie's. I have had a Reed Bunting (I thought this was a Sparrow with a black head at first) Yellow Hammer,Red/Black woodpecker.Our usual giant flock of Sparrows, Magpie's, Chaffinch,Wrens, Doves & Woodies. We have had a busy garden. But it is so cold again.

Goodness - you've got far more variety than we have. The cold is making them all very hungry - I seem to be supporting a lot of little beaks!

It's great now! But you know when we moved in here about 10 years ago, back then there wasn't even a sparrow coming into the garden. I had never lived anywhere, where there were no birds. Farmers really do have allot to answer for in the wild life department.

You are so right. I never really used to take that much notice, but life in the countryside is a quick education - now I can tell which farmer is renting the land around us just by the wildlife in our garden and the state of the cattle and sheep in the nearby fields.

Where I live now there are no animals being farmed. I took on the RSPCA and the Ministry Vets where I used to live, because of the state some lambs one year.

Yeah - we've had that too - three Christmas's ago is referred to in our village as the 'Christmas of the sheep'. The poor things were left to starve and the foxes had a fine time. The vets and the RSPCA were a fat lot of help - when all else failed, we all took turns in phoning the police every day. ::shudder:: Ah - the peace of the countryside *g*

Thanks! We don't have that many birds in the uk that have really bright colours.
