Maple Lodge Close Garden Birding
A busy time in the garden for me and the birds with many weeds to pull from my vegetable plot and my resident Great Tit's having 5 hungry mouths to feed! In my conifer hedge pair of Blackbirds are also busily feeding young and pair of Robins have recently taken up residence in the same hedge too. As I tend to the garden a Carrion Crow calls excitedly from above and I look up to see it chasing off a Red Kite that had strayed too close to its nest. A few minutes later a Hobby appears from the north hawking insects before drifting away to the south. Not bad this garden birding lark!
