Having been away for 2 weeks, this is the first chance I have had to tell you about the amazing buddies I have seen. To begin with, we decided (that's DH and I) to buy seed and fat balls etc for the birds that would visit our pitch. Believe me, we spent a fortune and it was worth every penny. We had
at least 14 long tailed tits
umpteen great tits
several blue tits
coal tits galore
a green finch
at least 3 bullfinches
either Mrs robin or sparrows (but not tree sparrows) and
I tried and tried to take photos but it was so difficult through the motorhome window. However, here is one I did manage:
Along the Tees were plenty of cormorants and the odd duck or two around the barrage, but when we went to Newcastle, there was also a sea lion or seal, not sure because as soon as I managed to get my phone ready to take a photo, he/she had disappeared under the Tyne bridge!!
I thoroughly enjoyed getting so close to the gorgeous little birds, but who have you been crafting with lately. Leave a comment with a link back to your blog so we can have a peep.
