Birds in my Garden

 One of the things I enjoy is feeding the birds so I have a variety of bird feeders in the garden to attract different kinds of birds.

Mostly I get the usual Blue tits, Coal tits and Great tits, Blackbirds, Thrushes, Sparrows, Starlings, Robins and Collared doves, but recently I have been getting Great spotted woodpecker and a Treecreeper.

While I was observing the feeders through my scope I managed to get some pictures of the treecreeper through the scope.

I usually only see Treecreeper when out in wooded areas and have never seen one in my garden before.

It was eating the fat cake which I hang up on the tree for the birds. The fat is quite soft compared with that found in the fat balls, so it is only suitable for putting out in the winter when it is quite cold. In the summer it would quickly melt.

Hopefully I can get a photograph of the Great spotter woodpecker.
