R B night

No not Robbie Burns but Reed Bunting where 1-3 are visiting my garden daily. For a bird of open country they generally stay on the ground although one has been converted to a townie and uses the feeder.

Nice to see a bright bully making a brief appearance. They occasionally visit but I have never seen them feeding!

The local residents of course look down their nose at all these invaders to their patch. Having done Garden Birdwatch for over 12 years Jackdaw along with House Sparrow and Starling are the birds with an 100 % attendance record.

I for one will not be shooting any Haggis tonight and my bottle of malt ran out last night so I doubt I'll be toasting the bard with anything other than wine so bottoms up!
