Just a couple of hours were spent out on my patch, where the most noteworthy record was the sighting of no less than three CHIFFCHAFFS at the Greenhouse Grounds, incredible, maybe they have started to return to breed already Lol! A couple of LESSER REDPOLL and 4 YELLOWHAMMERS were also at the Greenhouse grounds, but few finches remain now that the supplementary feeding has stopped.
The KESTREL flew out over the sheep pasture at Migrant Alley, where there were a gathering of 3 Gull species, BLACK HEADED, HERRING and LESSER BLACK BACKED, but no Med Gull today.
Half a dozen MEADOW PIPITS flew up from the Ashes Lane Filed as I walked to the lakes, but there was nothing at all to see on the water today, except the MALLARDS and MOORHENS.
LONG TAILED TIT, COAL TIT, NUTHATCH, BULLFINCH, GOLDCREST and MISTLETHRUSH were the best of the woodland species seen today.
Up to 12 Lesser Redpoll are still using my garden feeders, the most common bird on them now :-) Here's the rest of yesterdays images I took at my garden feeding station............
