Let's talk about poo. Did you know we can use animal poo to learn about nature? Take part in our quiz (it's a real stinker) & see if you can tell the scat of a bat, from the poo of a shrew. Oh...and be sure to turn your volume up πŸ”Š...

Sometimes it's simply them washing themsleves. If it's synchronised it is part of their courtship displays πŸ¦†

Thanks for a brilliant everyone! Finished my hour off with a starling, 2 dunnocks, some house sparrows, some goldfinches, a greenfinch, one long tailed tit - and one mystery visitor I'm stuck on. Does anyone know what kind of bird this is?πŸ€”πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

Excellent - a woodpecker is always a welcome visitor! And an eagle's screech sounds like it could be a buzzard. They have a caw that sounds like a stereotypical eagle's call. You can listen here πŸ‘‰

Hello ! You'll find birds visitng feeders fluctuates throughout the year, and many rely more heavily on feeders during winter. It might be that as spring is springing, more natural food is available which they're choosing before getting down to breeding!

How strange - it's a big egg! It does look like a chicken's egg from that photo...perhaps pinched from someone's back yard hens?

Fabulous! The males often steal the glory, but a female blackbird in the morning sun takes some beating!
