Getting out in the garden in winter is really beneficial for mind, body and soul!
We’ve been continuing our regular gardening group on a Tuesday afternoon (1.30-4.30) with some extra winter events thrown in to keep us busy.
RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, 30th Jan
We spent an hour spotting what birdlife comes into the garden. We spotted
1 wood pigeon
2 blue tits
2 carrion crows
9 house sparrows
and 36 feral pigeons!
Here’s a pic of the starling:
This week we have been enjoying a flock of waxwings using the garden – feeding on fruit left on the trees for that very purpose!
No pics of the waxwings as yet but they are gorgeous punky looking birds!
