Birds in the garden

29th November 2015
I got excited for at least a day when I saw that the weather was going to get colder thinking that the birds would return to the feeders in the garden.

It's certainly been too warm of late with so much food elsewhere for the usual flocks of finches and tits to come calling.

My all time record is 32 Goldfinches feeding at one time.. if you knew the size of my garden you'd appreciate that is quite a gathering! Currently the garden is being visited by a small group of 8 -9 regulars, a few Greenfinches and Chaffinches but still no sign of my Bullfinchs for the moment.

All the other regulars are swinging by along with the Coal Tits who are my favourite little birds, we've even had a few visits from a Great Spotted Woodpecker recently who has been feeding on my suet filled silver birch feeder.

It would be wonderful however for a few sharp frosts, a light snow flurry or two to get some festive photographs into the portfolio this year.
