Garden Update

Hello

Many thanks for calling in.

The garden is still . . . . well still.

The greater spotted woodpecker has been visiting the feeding station. It enjoys tucking into the coconut shell that Mr CK filled with lard, seeds and nuts but instead of getting stuck in with the open side of the coconut, it likes to peck through the tiny hole at the top. More of a challenge, maybe.











The old Christmas tree is still going strong.

Bye for now.

    1. They are a bit fuzzy as I was inside trying to zoom in and not wobble at the same time :-)

  6. The weather is having a strange effect. Your Christmas tree looks fab! Oh how exciting to have a Woodpecker in your garden, Jack scares most birds from ours, except two cheeky magpies who steel his breakfast xx

    1. Ha ha, getting their own back! The squirrels keep sneaking in and pinching all the nuts. x

  7. I would love to have birds come into our garden as we've tried many times to encourage them with different types of bird feeder and food, but apart from robins and blackbirds others are quite content to stay and breed mainly in the shrubs and trees of neighbour's garden, which has never been cultivated. Lovely shot of the woodpecker and to hear about its antics when feeding. Have a good day!
