Most of Europe seems to be getting extra snow this March, us included. I’m sick of the sight of it now!!!!! It’s so annoying when my garden is just emerging and it gets covered again. So far all we’ve got is a few snow covered crocuses!
BUT the birds are returning. Today on the birdtable a Greenfinch was sharing the food with the sparrows. I’ve seen Thrushes and heard them singing in the early morning. Our Robin has returned. The Nut crackers are still here, guzzling away. And look who popped in for a snack!
It’s now difficult to get bird food. All the shops are on a schedule and have the Barbecue stuff in. I managed to get an extra bag of hempseed, so my lot are ok. In the UK I could buy birdseed all year round. I won’t feed all year just wish they would stock later into the spring.
