During the recent cold and snowy weather there's been but one ruler in my garden... but today...things changed!
Up until 7.30 this morning my resident male Blackbird has been the ruler over the whole garden..seeing off all comers, size was no object be it Woodpigeons to Starlings or Robins to Dunnocks all were given short shrift!
Today, that reign came to an abrupt end when he was ousted by the arrival of a new ruler in the garden!
A solitary Fieldfare has taken over as boss, seeing off the Blackbird, and anything else that came too close or stayed to long, at the earliest opportunity! Apart from the regular skirmishes and the odd preening session it has spent the last seven hours (and still counting!) busily chomping its way through the apples I'd put out in the garden...it must be the healthiest Fieldfare for miles around!
|Just call me the boss!|
I think I need to buy some more apples!!
