    1. They are lovely birds. Debs but taking photos through diamond leading doesn't help

  4. Unique feeder!!! First time I've seen one like this...I'll keep my eye open for one. Loved the video.

  5. Oh, aren't they the cutest little things! We don't have any in North America, so I'm really enjoying seeing this. And that cage is awesome - we often have the larger birds getting to all the food & keeping the smaller ones away & this looks like a great way to avoid that. I'll have to look for something similar.

  7. They are my favourite garden bird - well done for getting these shots. I seem to have lost you again from my blog list - I wonder why you keep disappearing?

  9. Hello again, Sue - I too agree with you and that's why capturing video (nice one) is so good.

    Its been some time since I've wandered around my garden with my still camera (mind you the rain this summer hasn't helped the cause). Looking back at your blogs, its nice to see your allotment and garden have been thriving despite the weather :-D

  12. These are my little favourites, I have a flock of about a dozen that arrives at fairly regular intervals during the day and absolutely cover both the feed block and fat-ball feeders.

    1. They are one of my favourites too Rick, Unfortunately we only have them visit now and again but always as a flock.

  13. That's a fab bird feeder! You did well getting photos.

  14. Heehee, one of my faves too, I heard some passing through out the back earlier. They're harder to see at this time of year because of the the tree foliage, so nice to be them on your feeder sue.

    1. It is often case of hearing birds them rather than seeing them Lou, I'm sure we get all sorts of sorts visiting the garden that we are never aware if.
