I’ve been so busy of late that I forgot to follow up on my last post so here’s a brief update.
As mentioned then I decided to refill our feeders a month earlier than last year due to the very dry summer we’ve experienced. The landscape around here like elsewhere in the country is very parched and dry and there certainly doesn’t seem to be much food about for the birds. If the number of half eaten tomatoes in our garden is anything to go by I’d say that all the birds are hungry and looking for food and moisture. Twenty four hours is all the time it took for this tui to land on the feeder and take a drink.
