    I wasn't aware that 'gannets' were garden birds, but they ARE !  I put out all sorts of scraps, including cooked porridge, dry porridge, cereals,  linseed, sunflower seeds, wotnot and thingummybobs, and the bloody gannets just swoop, scoff and get ft nd sassy. As i usually cook the porridge with water, it ain't too 'sticky' for them, and they quickly clean their beaks off on a branch,  We now have a goodly assortment on the lotty........... including a flock of blue tits, two great tits,  some new long tailed tits, a TREE SPARROW,  VERY RARE INDEED !, goldfinches, dunnocks, blackies, spuggies, greenies, jackers, collared doves, peasants, an occasional song thrush, robins and a wren, o wee troglodites troglodites !   It's bloody cold up there in wor shed at this time, but it's worth it !

    THE WRENS ARE MY FAVES,  but the thrush's name, turdus turdus is a CRACKER too-woo woo ! !

  • My wrens certainly try to live up to their name - they nest underneath our cabin, which is about 2ft off the ground.  

    Right, have now looked up turdus, turdus as well!   What else can you teach me today?image
