Subject: BS: I've got 3 sorts of tits!
From: Liz the Squeak
Date: 14 Nov 06 - 05:30 AM

This morning, my great and blue tits were joined by a coal tit.

I love this time of year - the gentle defoliation means the exposure of all those crannies that were covered in the summer. The lack of leaves on the bastard service tree meant I got a clear view of the coal tit that had previously not been visible.

As for the rest of the garden....

The blackbirds have denuded my bush of berries, they're welcome to them because I need to trim it to more treelike stature before next Spring. They're going to be in trouble when it comes to househunting.... we're acquired a robin who's househunting too! He's been bouncing around the garden as if he were on springs, shouting the odds from the bay tree and daring the cats to come and have a go.... plucky little bugger he is.

This time of year the long tailed tits return in flocks too. It's fun to see how many can fit on a single peanut feeder.

We still have plenty of berries I think nature must be anticipating a hard winter in her abundance but then our blackbirds much prefer anything I grow for my own table.

Yes, I know the spade should have been in the shed but it's had an 8ft spider web on it until recently, and I didn't have the heart (or nerve) to move it.

Sadly we seem to have a bit of a shortage of birds - probably the fault of the neighbourhood cats. Ah well, moving house soon, and we'll try and rent somewhere out in the country where there's more interesting fauna than just the local variety of Chav Tit. (Which has the locating call of "KEL-LY", because the aforesaid Kelly's friends are too thick to work out complex mechanisms like doorbells...)

Liz - spiders don't often reuse a web, although they might get two days out of one. You can sometime test for occupancy with a tuning fork. If it was a common garden orbweb spider it would be in the middle of the web anyway. But I do appreciate your kindness to arachnids.

Kindness nothing, the bitch was bigger than Shelob and she sat there for nearly a month!

Georgian - there are some guys who would say two dozen are not enough....

The tits have been busy at the feeders.. they have ignored the peanut net and the mixed grain, going straight for the black sunflower seeds hanging in the middle. Seems they're as picky as some children I know...

For georgiansilver:

Speedy Birdcake by Jane Asher

You need: Suitable container - coconut shell or clean yoghurt pot, a heatproof pan, string.

Ingredients: Beef suet or lard (you need one part of lard to two parts of any of the following. You can just use seeds but any of the other ingredients are suitable too), seeds, nuts, dried fruits - raisins, sultanas - finely chopped bacon rind.

Instructions:
1. Melt or soften the suet/lard in a pan.

2. Pour the other ingredients you are using into the suet and mix well.

3. Place the string into the container so that half of the string is in the container and half is outside. Hold the string in place and pour the mixture into the container over the string.

4. Leave the mixture to cool.

5. Once the suet has hardened, hang up your container by the string that you left hanging outside the pot or coconut.

Enjoy watching the birds eating the food. You may see tits, greenfinches and, if you are lucky, great spotted woodpeckers. Blue tits and great tits may perform acrobatics and hang upside down at times while they eat.

You may get to see great tits performing acrobatics while hanging upside down.

Don't often see a coal tit. Long tailed, great and especially blue - loads of them usualy - seem to be more common here. I haven't spotted many tits on the feeders yet.

My favourite sight lately has been a couple of Jays. I hear them in the woods often enough but I rarely see them. They have been picking up food from the drive and have got as close as about 6 feet from my bedroom window - don't think I've ever seen them that close before.

There has been a woodpecker hammering away in the wood but I've not seen it.

If you have cats, be careful when positioning your fat ball... pussies like eating fat and those seeds have a dire effect on them... see this thread for details.

I meant to do my work today-
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field.
And all the leaves were calling me.

And the wind went sighing over the land
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand-
So I said SOD WORK TODAY,
Im gonna sit here and count Tits,
Oh, I may as well open that can of beer....

Apologies to Richard LeGallienne

We used to live between Chipping Norton and Banbury and in winter used to have a whole set of tits except for bearded and crested ones - Blue/great/coal/long tailed tits would come to the bird table and we had willow and marsh in a wild bit at the back of the garden.

Lovely things.

Microwave is good for melting lard prior to adding suet, peanuts, grain & sunflower hearts for bird cake. Can't imagine why these are so expensive in the shops, why does anyone buy them?

The bird-lawn is becoming very attractive, so much so that a juvenile peregrine falcon landed on top of the bird-table the other day. Seem an adult in the garden a few days ago too! Nature's way!
