This is a photo from the last season of a pair of jays that visited my garden regularly.
Birds are here throughout the year. In Spring they are busy rearing the babies and the rest of the year they find enough food, but then comes the Autumn and the food supplies have to be helped a little. During the Summer I leave the birds to themselves, but now is the time when the stores are supplying the large bags os food so being a bird friend I have two large bags of seeds to get them through the colder seasons. Yesterday I got my bird feeder reader and filled it with seeds. I was expecting a cloud of hungry birds to swoop down on my bird table and help themselves.
This was yesterday and up to now the bird feeder has been ignored and not one single bird has shown interest in the new supply of seeds. However not quite. This morning one single blue tit sat on the platform, had a sniff around and afterwards left. I have not seen it since and so my supply of bird food remains untouched. Perhaps it is still too warm for feeding the birds.
I will have to be patient until the birds return for their Winter feeding sessions.RDP Saturday: Birds
