While making a cup of coffee on Thursday morning, I absently gazed out of the kitchen window at the birds as they went about their business in the bijou garden of Château DeVice. Reminded of Mistress Maddie's Usual Suspects series of blog posts, I thought this was a good opportunity to do one of my own, and set about taking some photos of the garden visitors. While not quite as colourful as some of Maddie's visitors, the birds of Château DeVice are no less entertaining.
Until a certain arrival spoiled everything...

|"Get out of the way! I need somewhere to land!"|
|A female house sparrow sharing the feeder with a coal tit|
|A male house sparrow on the other bird feeder|
|A blue tit with a beak full of sunflower seed|
|The blue tit and coal tit again|
|An inquisitive robin|
|Beaky! Take note of the murderous look in his eye!|
Don't look at me like that, you little bastard! I'm not chopping up any sultanas for you!
