The goldfinches are back!
Well, one of them....to explain, I can't say I ever noticed these colourful little birds before, but just after Kent died I noticed a pair of goldfinches on the bird feeder just outside the kitchen window. They returned every year about the same time, apart from last year when I don't remember seeing them. Well, I've seen one twice now, so I popped out to buy a new niger seed feeder (and seed).
Having a pair of expert killers living here does have an effect on the bird population...they stay away when the cats are out, but when their ladyships come back in, the birds quickly reappear.
Hmmm......need to get out in the garden. Certainly plenty to do out there.
