The following photo’s are of birds that are visiting the garden here in WA. I have no idea what species they are but offer them up for your delectation.
Should anyone be able to identify the species, please let me know.
We put this bird box up last year, well after normal nesting season.
So you can imagine how chuffed we are that we have new tenants in the first year since we opened for business.
We have been watching them coming and going for quite a few days. The photo shows the removal of what must be the “wrong” type of feather.
Can’t wait to see the young when they emerge..
When I stumbled across this pigeon, it had its head and shoulders right in the hole. Once it realised I was there it wouldn’t stop watching me.

Not sure who “franzy” is that’s being fed according to The Mail. But this collage is fabulous.
I haven’t posted from the conservatory for a while. But here are three items to make up for it.
The first is a shot of a Red Admiral, a typical summer visitor who was making the most of our Buddleia or Butterfly Bush. At least in this case it was living up to its name. Most years we have hundreds of flowers but the butterflies don’t come until the flowers have turned brown.
The next is of a Green Woodpecker. Not such a regular visitor to our garden but a welcome one all the same. We do see them in the area and this is the second time in recent months. This was taken through the double glazing so I consider this a lucky shot considering that I had the 300mm lens on as well which makes it a bit more difficult to keep the camera stable.
And finally a bit of humour. I was just mowing the lawn and popped indoors for a cuppa tea. When I cam back out my mower had all but disappeared. I blame it on this mixed up summer weather that we have had this year.
