What a glorious day down in London. Just cleared up another 4 sackfuls of leaves, fed all the birds and am now going to have a lovely cup of tea. Nice Day! Smile

It's been an excellent day here in Calgary also; light wind for a change, and about 0C on the temperature. Just enough cloud to soften the light, perfect. Here's a new visitor to the garden today. The furthest I could zoom out is 70mm, so it was hard to get the whole animal.

I spotted an Autumn visitor today - my wife clearing up the leaves (she obviously doesn't think I've been doing a good enough job so far! Wink )

The finches love the nyger seeds, but I'm wondering just how much of it they actually eat. Having just dug up a 2ft wide growth of nyger plants underneath the feeder where the seeds have fallen, I attached a tray underneath to catch the seeds before they drop to the ground. It just shows up how much is wasted and not eaten. This is just after one day of clearing out the tray. I've only ever seen these types of nyger seed dispensers. Do others of you have the same problem?

Mine doesn't have a tray (the seeds/cases just drop to the floor) - though the holes in the side are a lot smaller then your's, just enough room to allow one seed at a time. I think Gold Finches are just messy eaters!

We are having some fantastic uploads - it's wonderful to see 'foreign' wildlife! Smile

What beautiful pictures StrayCat, and what superb wildlife you get in your garden. I see you've got lots of snow. We're still in a comparative heatwave over here in the UK. It's confusing everything.

Only just come across this, so decided to join you all Smile
Things are quietening down in the garden now, with the onset of cooler weather. Had a wander round today, saw some shield bugs, scorpionflies, bumble-bees and spiders. Bougainvilleas are still in bloom, so they are attracting the odd red admiral and white butterflies, too. Quite a number of hedgehogs coming into the garden at present, but my labrador will insist on picking them up in his mouth and putting them in his kennelSmile. 18 forecast for tomorrow, so I hope to find something worthwhile photographing.
