Where Are My Tits?

I’m a keen – never leave home – twitcher. It was partly what got me through my depression in 2006. Normally, through the year we get a range of varying types of birds visit the garden. Various types of tits, blackbirds, robins, dunnocks, sparrows, wood pigeons and collared doves, even the odd greenfinch. But the one bird we get with a dizzying degree of regularity is the goldfinch.

Until now.

As of this week, I don’t think I’ve seen ONE goldfinch for about three weeks. This is just unheard of. The only bird I HAVE seen in the last few days has been a robin. Not even the doves and pigeons are hanging about.

WHERE HAVE ALL MY BIRDIES GONE?

With winter coming on and us putting food out, I should be seeing MORE of them, not LESS of them!

As I type, I can hear Mr Robin chirping his pee-d off song. Will he be the only visitor today?

Stay tuned…

  1. Sorry to get you going there David :-)Chris: we’ve had a magpie hanging about a bit. The only bird that has been. Until later yesterday! Good news! A blue tit came to visit fleetingly, as well as a goldfinch. And two goldfinches have been here this morning. The birds must have read my blog post 🙂

  2. Over the years the birds in our garden have changed. Sadly we no longer seem to have a robin or the smaller birds who have been chased away by magpies. Although we did have blackbirds nesting close by earlier in the year.

  3. Ha! I’m gonna complain about this post’s title to the Trade’s Description Act people! :DDavid Bridger
