  1. Hi Everyone.

    Hey dude, nice you're on board! You'll be filling your garden with birds before you know it!

    @SueG well spotted yes there are always a couple of species that frustrate, the bibs laid but we're infertile, the gouldians made nests, the green singers made a nest and the spice finches had 3 chicks close to fledging and abandoned them! As for the cape doves they were always the birds I wanted but could never seem to find, I've heard it may be even harder now!

    Hi all, thanks for your comments I'm beginning to realise the landscape has changed somewhat in the last 7 or 8 years! I guess I'll just get the flight up and hope to hit the Stafford spring show! I'm also just realising how many birds I missed off the list

    Hi mark, yes just noticed daz was still active, haven't seen him for years! I'm planning on using a heavily planted area of the garden as a flight, there is a convenient shed next to it in which I'm going to build a small indoor enclosure, insulated and heatedfor exitics, I've had a few ideas over the years I've been away, just hoping I can implement them!
