Whth snow and ice all over the place it is getting harder for birds to find food. Each morning I put a board out on a small wall just outside the lounge window. I put ground nuts, bread crumb etc on it. I also have a hanging gadget with nuts in it. I get a wide variety of birds calling. I had 2 wood pidgeons call today.
We also have some foxes visit our garden at night. There seem to be plenty of them here in the centre of Rathfarnham.
You had any interesting visitors to your garden since the cold spell started ?

I have had a pair of blackcaps feeding in the garden for the last month. Our bloody cat nabbed the hen blackcap today. Cat was nearly going for a drive up the mountains !
