Seeds, Gold Finches and Beer
by Lachie Strummer - 11:20 on 19 April 2010
Heard the first cuckoo of the year yesterday.
I suspect it was the only thing flying between Africa and Northern Europe over the last few days.
Spent the weekend with ‘herself’ clearing brambles and rushes from one corner of the croft.
We got the earlies planted last week ; Duke of Yorks and Sharpe’s Express.
We’ll see how they go.
Put out some nyjer seed this week.
Apparently, it’s a good way to attract goldfinches to the garden.
I’ll keep you posted.
Received a visit from a couple of Saasaig hombres on Saturday evening.
They don’t usually come this far North until the beginning of May.
Anyway, they were no trouble at all.
