Strange one that, ours occasionally disappear when the sparrow hawks come round, but soon come back again.

The colder weather means cats stay closer to houses/homes meaning they are around gardens more, birds notice this.

We have a regular pair of Blackbirds coming into our garden, but now they have been joined by another Blackbird but this one has a black bill. After a bit of research it seems to be a Scandinavian Blackbird. Will try & get a better look & pin it down as to what it really is.

Not sure about the logic Davey. When the cats roam, they go in someone else's garden. We regularly have two or three neighbour's cats in our garden. Where there are gardens there be cats. In my experience, in the cold weather, you wouldn't see birds (feathered variety) in the lounge because that's where the cats will be. :D
If you think you will succeed, or think you will fail, you will usually be right.
