Winter events at the NEA garden

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 starling

1 wood pigeon

1 dunnock

1 robin

2 blackbirds

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!
