Each day we fill the bird feeders with nuts and fat balls and have attracted many birds to the garden. These include Robins, Sparrows, Magpies, the Lesser spotted woodpecker, Mistle thrush, Song thrush, Blackbird, Stonechat, Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Nuthatch, Wren, Great tit, Blue tit, Collared dove, Pigeon and Crow. No doubt some more that we have not recognised.
However two of our favourite guests are a family of Dormice that live in the Rhododendron bush and a Red-legged partridge that calls each day for seed. He has trained my mother to put out a handful on the centre lawn each day for his breakfast. It really is Bed and Breakfast in Telford at The Stanage.
