Squirrels are very clever and can out wit any bit of engineering to stop them so if you can’t beat them let them feed!
The starlings are a wonderful bird, their feathers are full of colour. Some over winter here, some come in from east Europe. Any body lucky to view a “murmuration” cannot be amazed at the beauty of this spectacle
A very busy day on the feeders today 30th January, many varieties of birds visiting.

Poor photograph of male sparrow hawk, taken quickly through window at an oblique angle, it swooped down but did not get a strike. The throngs of birds scattered and it rested for about 30 seconds or so on top of the Kilmarnock willow at the pond side
Todays weather, very wet see link to my weather station.
I now have time. Retired at Christmas 2016. So the more time to waste.
I hope to post daily starting in February, this will be solely based around our wildlife garden in the west of Scotland. I hope to include daily weather results and a daily record of wildlife seen within the garden. This will include photographs and video.
I will link this site again with Twitter and Face book.
