I was a bit annoyed that I wasn't fast enough to hit print screen when the kitten was getting a closer look - maybe I'll do better next time Smile

Some highlights captured from the whole of last night. I captured some 4.5 hours of footage from the whole period of darkness where there was something going on with this video being just a very small example of what can be seen if you're prepared to stay up all night Tongue I have the luxury of being able to record anything that happens and viewing/editing it in the morning, but there seems to be at least a few insomniacs that stay online all night watching, that's dedication! Wink
At the moment there seems to be a flurry of activity just after darkness falls, then it seems to go quiet for a while with everything coming in and munching like mad after about 2am until dawn. If you're not aware of the website it can be found by visiting http://osman123.camstreams.com/ The live stream normally starts at around dusk Smile

Well it's just gone live for the night, if you can't access it for any reason it's probably down to your browser?.......Try using MS Internet Explorer 9 or 10, this seems to work for most folk.

Having lots of problems with pigeons now. I started feeding the garden birds years ago and for a while it was all lovely. All the "proper" wild garden birds visited and their numbers grew. Unfortunately, the pigeons caught on and now I have a flock of about 30 who live on the roof and are around most of the day looking for food. If they don't get any, they eat my flowers. All the heads are bitten off.

And now the new neighbours are making huffy noises about them, and I can't say I blame them as they've started to sit on their roof during the day too. If I stop feeding the nice birds I wonder what'll happen to them. They're regulars, and the sparrows and tits have done really well over the years, let alone the starlings. I just don't know what to do. Sometimes I wish I hadn't started the feeding in the first place as it's so hard to stop. Will they all starve or die off if I don't feed them? Sad

No.

I haven't been feeding my birds all summer. I was afraid the babies would try and cuddle up to the cats, so wanted them a little 'world-wise' before they visited. I shall start feeding again around first frost time. At the moment my garden is empty of birds, but I know within a week of feeding it will be all a-flutter again.

I don't know if it would work, but have you thought about getting/making a model hawk on the wing (I have heard just a cardboard one would work), the shadow scares them off! (I've just 'googled' it and there are several suggestions there!). Smile

Hi Karen. Thanks for the suggestions of a model hawk, but the chap next door had two of them hanging very close to my fence and they didn't have any effect at all I'm afraid. Even the real sparrowhawk doesn't come down very often, although with all the dinner around you'd think it'd make a nest in my cherry tree! Grin

I think by now the youngsters are old enough to find food themselves, if they know how. I'm afraid I might have done them a disservice by putting food out all the time so they'll not learn how to fend for themselves, but I might give it a go until hopefully the pigeons go elsewhere. I've kept feeding all summer as the juveniles and chicks just kept appearing, but perhaps I'll just lay off for a while. Typical, just when I've taken delivery of some more feed. Sad


Oh, and saw my first garden (or cross) spiders on the hydrangea yesterday. Autumn's on the way.

It's raining here too which means the small hole in my garage roof felt needs to be fixed asap! I might creep to my neighbour this weekend and see if he'll do it - he's not working at the moment Smile

It's raining here too. A spa day for my pigeons. They're all over the lawn preening and getting the rain under their wings. Luv 'em. Little b*ggrs.
