Birds and Birdboxes




These pictures were taken in St Leonards Gardens which have recently been refurbished and replanted. Unfortunately, the replanting scared off many of the local birds. So, if you look carefully in the pictures above, you will see some of the 35 birdboxes that have been made from recycled wood and placed in the trees to encourage the birds to come back (you may need to bigify).

It seems to be working, as you can see we have pigeons, seagulls and finches so far. The little finch is actually flying into one of the birdboxes. Look closely at the lovely colours on these pigeons, aren't they beautiful?

I don't need to tell you guys exactly what I am thinking now do I? FAZ
