Today I collected twelve eggs from our rescue hens, they have settled well and are obviously enjoying roaming free in our half acre garden. The ducks are a joy to watch at the moment as they are trying to establish who will be mating pairs! On Sunday we made a record of the birds that visited the garden. We had: a nuthatch, four chaffinch, three robins, four great tits, four blue tits, four coal tits, three sparrows, a woodpecker, a green-finch, a blackbird and then the final flurry of activity at eleven o’clock was a mob of long-tailed tits that flew in and produced a splendid sight of bobbing tails, there must have been at least eight of these little wonders.
