Hungry Squirrel

This squirrel could have picked a better branch to sit on, but as he was intent on eating what he’d just picked from the ground, I decided to take a photo with the twigs partially blocking my view of him.

He was utterly oblivious to us standing there, and also seemed to be quite happy with the low drone of the machinery cutting the grass in the adjacent field.

Goldfinch Party

While the sparrows were fighting over the bird bath, the Goldfinch decided to make the most of the seed feeder. These seeds weren’t the success were were lead to believe they would be – it seems that the Goldfinches don’t really think of them as such a treat after all.

This bird made them seem so desirable though, that the blue tit decided to try some.

And even the sparrow wanted to sample some!

Generally though, only the finches and Coal Tit are able to get the seeds from the narrow slit in the feeder, so the sparrows have to make do with picking up any seeds that have fallen to the ground.
