It’s the middle of November and the birds are returning t0 the garden. We’ve had a couple of light falls of snow that have melted.There’s been a pair of Jays at the table for several weeks, extremely shy. I saw the Nutcrackers yesterday too, one with a noisy Juvenile, shouting in one of the trees. The Tits have been around to. But mostly the sparrows have arrived. And what a summer they must have had. From a small group, I think there must be about 30 in the noisy, ever arguing family. Heavens knows what it will cost to feed the gang this winter!
