The bird cake I made earlier in the week also seems to be going down well. I covered some pine cones and stuck them in a flower pot. The Magpies and Blackbirds seem to really like those.
We seem to have a lot of Blackbirds in the garden at the moment. We had a lot of babies this summer, so they may all be related. The female Blackbirds seem to be much darker than they were during the summer - must be their winter plumage.

The Sparrow family have been spending a lot of time in the little Acer by the patio. They must have found some seeds, because they're enjoying something in there.
