HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY BIRD FEEDING

I would like to wish you a Happy Christmas

I’ve got a lot of birds eating from the feeders this morning – as usual.

I’ve been out about 3 times already putting different bird food in different places.

Have had some thrushes this morning and the usual blackbirds, bluetits, chaffinches.  Plus many others flying through the air a breakneck speed before landing to eat the birdfood.  It’s a wonder there’s never a ‘mid air crash’ as these garden birds fly through the small airspace where my (their) bird feeders are!

Today has been different though because for the first time in ages I’ve seen a squirrel in the garden.  It must have been coming for ages. So the garden birds are sharing their bird food with rooks, crows, pigeons and now squirrels!  We watched this squired and it went under an upturned plastic chair that’s near one of the bird feeders.  We’ll have to go and take a look at what’s under it.  A stash of nuts perhaps?

I’m so glad I’ve put some wire mesh round some of the feeders. Keeps the larger birds out but not the squirrel.

Everyone who puts bird food out must be helping these many birds (and perhaps an unwanted squirrel) survive the winter.  The nights are so dark, cold and long at the moment so birds don’t have as many daylight hours to find food which will sustain them through the long nights.

Went to Midnight Mass at our local Church last night.  It was lovely.  apart from anything else I like singing hymns and Carols.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

Away in a manger,
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing
The poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes

I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side,
‘Til morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus,
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me I pray

Bless all the dear children
In Thy tender care
And take us to heaven
To live with Thee there
