my DH was telling me about his office mate who can't work at home at the moment because a pair of ducks keep banging the catflap asking for food .

So you are not alone !

A friend once told me that a little falcon had crashed against his window while trying to catch a canary he had just left free in his living room.

it hadnt hit the window it was tapping on it on purpose

yes I understood, obviuosly, falcons dont tap windows, but I found the story a bit weird.

oh think having a falcon tapping on the window would have finished me off sure there is all sorts of old wives tales etc re birds and windows.

I had a bird crash into my closed French window smashing the pane and dropping instantly dead to the ground. It sounded like a gunshot when it happened - that frightened me I can tell you, thought someone had taken out a contract on me

Currently a woodpecker has taken up residence in my garden and wakes me at the crack of dawn every morning with its extremely annoying tree tapping. had one a few years ago which I managed to frighten off but this one won't budge. Think its got a nest.

my mum went to draw the curtains once and a BAT flew out and landed on her chest!

original leaded windows usually attract alot of little birds and tits that sit on them pecking

my MIL has two breeding pairs of ducks who return every year and sit at the patio doors/follow her round the garden waiting for her to feed them. she also has two robins and lots of 'tits' of various kinds.

the latest edition is a breeding pair of pheasants..........noisy beggars and the male keeps trying to get in the house.

they live in the middle of the countryside and i love just sitting in the garden and watching it all

update!! a mum at the dd s school said [cos her dh is a bird spotter] that it is breeding season and it prob saw its reflection and thought it was competition for the ladie birds ,,so i wont clean my window lol
