We became amateur bird spotters today amongst other things!! It all came about after we decided to rip up some left over bread after breakfast and pop it outside. We thought the birds would be along ‘as and when’ but within minutes a whole flock
appeared at our French doors and the kids were enthralled. We had robins, blackbirds, a blue tit, a bullfinch, a fat pigeon and even a pheasant crowing at us. The kids loved it and laughed their heads off as fat pigeon snapped up the lion’s share leaving the smaller birds with the leftovers. It was the kids f
irst real close-up encounter with some little feathered friends. We’ll be keen to see who pops up at our window tomorrow morning.
