I live in the countryside and derive great pleasure from the birds that come into my garden.
I have a greater spotted woodpecker that visits in the wintertime and a pair of magpies who live here all year round. They currently have produced four chicks making a total of six magpies. The parents seem to be driven mad by their family and are constantly flying to get away from them. I also have a pair of goldcrests who clearly have a nest close by. With lors of other varieties such as blue tits and sparrows eating at my bird table life is never dull. I manage to have one of my helpers fill up the seeds at regular intervals. Have any other countryside lovers had similar experiences?

    Thanks for sharing this :)

    I love the countryside too. :) Watching birds and other wildlife is quite relaxing and entertaining.

    Most of the time though when we are in the countryside we are with the dog so our focus is on him as we have to keep an eye on him and prevent him disturbing the wildlife.
