Bird Watching – a lovely description

This was sent to me in November, but am putting it on now.

 

I noticed that the number of squabbling starlings has increased here over the past couple of days.

This early evening I watched as a coal tit kept trying to grab a sunflower seed from the bird table.

The bird table was occuped by a robin which kept chasing the tit away, but it did not stop the coal tit from trying  until it had got its sunflower seed.  It just kept trying from different directions.

You think a robin is a small bird until you see a tiny coal tit next to one,  but this coal tit was not going to be bullied out of its supper.  I could have cheered out loud when it succeeded.  John.
