The garden is slowly coming to life after a rather cold winter. Encouragingly we’ve had a lot more birds in the garden recently. In fact, just now, we had four species at the same time:
- Dunnock (Prunella modularis)
- Collared dove (Streptopelia decaocto)
- Starling (Sturnus vulgaris)
- Wood pigeon (Columba palumbus)
It may not seem like much for those who live in the countryside but for a city garden that used to be very barren I think it’s a great sign.
