The variety of birds onto the feeders still good although numbers were lower today, maybe the drizzly start to the day with a strong breeze on top of the hill here did'nt help. Birds seen at 9.15 am being:- 5 House sparrows (3/2), 15 Chaffinchs, 2 Redpoll (1/1), 5 Brambling, 2 Great Tits, 3 Greenfinch (2/1), 1 Blue Tit, 2 Reed Buntings (1/1), 2 Blackbird (1/1), 1 Goldfinch, 1 Dunnock, 1 Robin, 4 Starling, and 2 collard Doves.
Driving over Red Bank just after 10.30 noticed a good flock of Goldfiches ( 30 to 40) on the feeders and hedge of Brian P's house, I'm lucky if i see 2or 3 in the garden. Hope you were at home with the camera going Brian!!.
And talking of Brian. Brian and Sue spent some time in Sri Lanka last year, and he has just finished a book entitled. IMAGES OF SRI LANKA. You can preview the book on blurb .com. (bookstore and just published) well worth the time to preview. hopefully before purchasing. (Brian. bill for plug in the post)
