Fishinks’ Wintery Walks and Feeding Birds.

December 26, 2010

Whilst having my breakfast and thinking about toast and snow, I thought about the ducks who live

down the lane from me on a small pond and it got me to wondering what they had around to eat

at this time of plenty for us. I broke up a few rounds of bread and I went for a walk.

It was sooo cold even with two pairs of gloves and three pairs of socks, I was still numb

on all extremities ! Of course the pond was iced over and the ducks weren’t anywhere to be seen,

they’ve probably taken off for somewhere much warmer and continental (more fool me eh).

But the Coots and Moorhens that were around were very happy that I’d made the journey to visit

with my meagre offerings. I even got to see this little fella wandering around.

Take a few minutes to think about the wildlife we all take for granted and clear a space in your garden

to leave some scraps for the birds etc in our neighbourhoods. I know they’ll be grateful too.

Here’s some images from my wintery walk.

For anyone interested in when and what to feed our feathered friends here’s what the RSPB suggests.
