The cold weather over the last week has brought a lot of activity to the feeders.With first sightings of Linnets. a single Redpole on tuesday, several visits by Reed Buntings (all male), and this morning (Sun) the first sighting of a brambling (f). Finch's have used the feeders the most, with a good number of goldfinch's on the niger feeders, whilst greenfinch's have taken to black Sunflower seeds which i have this year put into some of the peanut feeders. Other species noted are :- Blackbirds, House Sparrows, Blue, Great, and Coal tits, Robin, Wren, Dunnock, Nuthatch, Chaffinch, Wood Pigeon, Collard Dove, Pied Wagtail, Magpie, although I have seen a large number of Starlings overflying , So far i hav'nt seen any on the feeders .
Just in case this is the last chance for me to Blog this year, May i Wish you all a happy Christmas, a Prosperous New Year. And Good Birding in 2012..
