Short on time today, but the message for 30 Days Wild is big – plant a tree 🙂 Living or dead they are winners all round for both us and a variety of wildlife from birds to insects. Here’s a little garden moment from this morning to add to the case.
Newly fledged coat tits excitedly explored the garden early this morning. The light wasn’t good, but above are a few record shots, showing some of the places they stayed still enough to capture. They perched on a branch structure feeding station made from posts with branches from a neighbours felled apple tree. They crossed over to the living pine tree and it looked like they were all at a children’s playground! So lovely to hear them from indoors – what a lovely start to the day for me too.
Early lunchtime and there was a straggler coal tit fledgling spotted perched on a previously living garden Rowan tree. This part of the trunk was planted in a garden border, not to grow, as a perch on route to lower feeders with winter in mind. It works too plus a great spot to capture photos of visiting birds.
Wishing you a great weekend, I wonder if you will see fledging birds or be planting a tree? Do share in a comment 🙂
