Wicklow is stunning too, Sharon. Must be, otherwise you wouldn't have settled down there, right?

Do you ever see any of the Red Kites, which haven't been poisoined/shot?

What a lovely story about the door knobs! We used to have a Blue Tit at our old house that did the same thing and peeled away wood from our fence panels in the back garden - I never did find out why! How bizarre! In answer to your question (on my blog), I currently live in Co. Wicklow - you're very lucky to be living in Cork, I think it's the most beautiful part of Ireland! I went to Bantry for a holiday about 6 years ago, fell in love with the place & moved to Ireland almost 3 years ago. You have some fantastic scenery & wildlife where you are (I'm green with envy, in case you hadn't guessed!)

great story, Tony! I will have to think of something. I will not be able to beat your door knobs, however.
I might have to look at the eggs in spring, LOl! She is still at it, our little Blue Tit.

Francis, my hubby, told me that she is also feeding on grit from the breeze block wall up front, where the council built a high wall to prevent us toppling down the hill.

As a child I was fostered out on a farm, that had a deep litter . These where long sheds where the laying hens would roam around in relative comfort and laid eggs in nest boxes that could be got at externally for collection of the eggs. on the floor of the hut was saw dust hence the name deep litter huts,
The guy who was then our foster dad told us that the hens used to lay door knobs. from eating too much of the sawdust,
later I found out the mill where we had the sawdust from made all kinds of things from wood. and wooden knobs was one of them and defects would be strewn into the sawdust pile. that eventually would be found by little boys who would have been told that the hens laid door knobs. so I wonder what story you would tell about the blue tits who ate wood chips?
