It's been pouring with rain.... but I have had some amazing birds in the garden

It's been a terrible day weather wise and all my plans went out the window.
The rain has been quite heavy today (the sun is now shining as I write)
I have had a Bullfinch on the feeders nearly every day for a fortnight... today I had two.
I captured the male in this video clip... a sorry sight in the wet.


Highlight of the afternoon was a visit from a Great Spotted Woodpecker.
The regulars were all feeding in the rain but "hoover" the Woodpigeon was looking a bit forlorn.
The entire video was captured through the window.

Birds and animals just go on and do what they got to do...

Extraordinary again...I sound like a broken record, I know.

Oh, and I'll be humming the song 'feedin' in the rain' now, for the rest of the day. ;-)

Thanks for stopping by and linking up with your bird treasure this weekend!! Much appreciated.

The rain sure didn't slow them down. Boom, Bobbi and Gary.

Poor little creatures. But what an amazing sight.Do you have the feeder out all year round?

Great video! I really like the woodpecker!

Karen said...

Neat clip. I often see more activity at the feeders on a rainy day than a sunny one!

Beautiful birds despite the rain.

HI Andrew well you certainly did not waste you time just because it was raining. Great video and they do look be-dragged in the rain. great to have the woodpecker at the feeder. Hope you are having a good weekend.

Great video! I'm surprised so any are out in the rain.
