As I walked back from work, across Migrant Alley this afternoon, it was as bleak as I could ever remember it, cold, snowy and birdless - even the Robin has stopped singing. So with that in mind, and the fact that the lake is frozen solid, I thought I'd stay in and watch the garden feeders for the couple of hours of daylight that were left. Who knows maybe something special might drop in,a Brambling, or a Blackcap maybe ?
In the event neither turned up, but 15 other species did, all species that I would expect to see, and in good numbers too. So here's a few photo's of some of the regulars that visited. Lets hope tomorrow the weather eases a bit, Ive got a lot of catching up to do on the species list!
First bird is a GREAT TIT
Then a COAL TIT
Next is the ROBIN
Then a big fat WOODPIGEON
Below is a Mix of HOUSE SPARROW, GREENFINCH, GOLDFINCH and a GREAT TIT, all on the sunflower hearts. Ive just had a delivery of another 50kg, just in time, as I only had a days supply left!
