Still plenty of Blackbirds here in the Borderland. Wood Pigeon, Robins, Blue Tit, Chaffinch, Peregrine Falcon even come into the garden. Mind you, we do live next to a pretty heavy wooded area which may have a lot to do with it all.

I have put three nesting boxes up this year and all three have been occupied with Blue Tits and Long Tail  I think there has been a double clutch in one of them-soon find out when I take em down.
The Hawks have been very busy taking the scavenging wood pigeons out along with a few collared doves which are also a pest.
We seem to have had a lot of Starlings this year along with Goldfinches and Siskins ---and next door neighbour has had half his stock taken by a hungry Heron.

The trick there Jimmy is to have an artificial Heron stood by the side of the pool or pond. 
The Heron that is actually taking the stock will think the pond is being watched and bugger off.

I'll give in with that question davo. I will hazard a guess and say .02 of a second. 

The only way to save a tree is by eating a Beaver. cool
