Welcome return

This morning a song thrush has returned to the garden after not sighting or hearing the characteristic hammering to break open snail shells for over two years. Lovely song similar to the blackbird.





Fingers crossed that it is breeding nearby as a few years back they were regular visitors.

Re: Welcome return

I have a plague of leather jackets on my lawn giving rise to a lot of bare patches I had not known they were present. Then a pair of Thrushes and Blackbirds arrived and over a period of couple of weeks the have been at them non stop feeding young, must have got hundreds. Every morning I lifted the bins and door mat and killed about 20-30 of them so I must have got rid of a couple of hundred myself. They have died off now, but the birds certainly did their work.
Colin.

Re: Welcome return

It saddens me that birds so common in my youth have suffered such a decline.
Nice images

Re: Welcome return

Unfortunately, it's the same here with the Thrush family even though we have an ideal feeding area because we inundated every year with snails and slugs, in fact, my wife goes snail hunting at night when the Hosta leaves are out.
