    Good on you! The first birds are goldfinches, absolutely beautiful birds and becoming more common. Then as you say, male and female blackbirds. The one in fetching pinky-orange is a male chaffinch. I think the ones on the feeder are bluetit but can't really see to be sure (there are lots of different tits). Then back to the blackbirds again.

    Thank you ery much for taking the time..:)

    I gotta be soooo lucky! My large, first floor lounge window immediately overlooks woodland. You name it, we see it! Roe deer, foxes, squidgels, rodents, birds of all kinds [lot of jays this year] Whole squadrons of magpies, Big fat pigeons, woodpeckers. tawny owls, butterflies and creepy crawlies too varied to list! Hoggies are in strength this year and so are the blackbirds who's songs greet the day and call in the evenings.
    Another great bonus is the amount of wild fruits and berries. going to make loads of jams and copious amounts of crab apple jelly and rose hip jelly too! Elderberry wine, me thinks might be a good idea! Get out there and forage!
