I only spent a couple of hours out in the miserable conditions, I firstly re stocked the sunflower hearts over by the Greenhouse Grounds, where there were still 20-30 LESSER REDPOLLS feeding in the weedy patch, half dozen then moved onto my sunflower hearts, they were joined by a dozen each of GREENFINCH and CHAFFINCH, but very few GOLDFINCH were about and just 4 SISKIN were seen in the Alder trees, I didn't find any Linnet or YELLOWHAMMER there today, although a single of the latter flew over as I moved off. The female KESTREL assumed its position on the greenhouse roof :-)
There were just 2 MEADOW PIPITS seen at the Ashes Lane Fields as I passed through on the way to the lakes, where I was surprised to see the COOT was still in residence, a KINGFISHER brightened up proceedings, but nothing else of note was on the water.
I headed home via the Wet Woods and Small Holding area, noting NUTHATCH, TREECREEPER, BULLFINCH, at least 4 GOLDRESTS and a flock of LONG TAILED TITS. A dozen REDWING dropped into the Small Holding area, none were seen on yesterdays full patch walk.
I spent a little time watching my garden feeders this afternoon, but very little was coming in to feed, even the Sprawk stayed away! Top bird to visit though was a GREEN WOODPECKER for just the second time this year, moving this Novembers garden list on to a record breaking 27 :-)
Ive still got a few images in my blog folder, mostly of Redpolls, but here's a few finch shots I took at the Greenhouse Grounds at the weekend, plus a nice ROBIN that was hiding nearby in the hedgerow :-)
