Blackbird on the Wall

One of the benefits of the current UK Lockdown / social distancing and being at home more than usual is having the time to notice all the wildlife that visits our garden. Most of our garden visitors are birds, including; Sparrows, Blackbirds, Pigeons, Crows, Tits, and various other birds.

This little fellow settled down to enjoy some of the nibbles that we left out for our garden visitors.

Back Garden Wildlife

How are we all surviving lockdown / self isolating? In between spates of home working some of our extra spare time has been occupied by wildlife watching. Our living room window that looks out on to our back garden has been delighting us with views of various garden visitors. Normally our visitors are various breeds of birds, including; Sparrows, Tits, Magpies, Blackbirds, Crows, & Pigeons. But twice now we’ve been graced with the presence of a Squirrel who seems to enjoy the seeds & nuts we have put out for our feathered guests.

Although most us are social isolating it doesn’t mean that we have lock ourselves away from the natural world. In fact I believe that getting back to nature might actually help us all get through self isolating. We’re lucky enough to have a garden, for those that don’t have gardens we can all still get back to nature while out walking for our daily exercise while still adhering to social distancing guidelines.
