Tuesday's Treasures - Feathery Feeding Time!
For this week's Tuesday's Treasures I decided to post a picture of something that's very needed by our feathery friends at the moment.
On my birthday wish list this year was a bird feeding station which was kindly bought for me by my brother. When I was growing up my Dad was a avid ornithologist (and still is!) but to be quite honest I could never see the fascination! Since getting older however I now have more of an interest in all things 'wildlife' and there's nothing I like better than sitting at the kitchen table on a Sunday morning, nice hot cup of tea in hand whilst watching a garden full of birds enjoying their Sunday brunch.
I like to put a variety of food out but the blue-tits, great-tits and goldfinches particularly love sunflower hearts. Although, I must have got through at least 8 seed feeders in this year alone as the rather annoying squirrel (gun at the ready) keeps attacking them! I've now had to resort to a metal nut feeder but the feathery numbers seem to have dwindled recently so I really don't think they're impressed with the menu choice!
