Some garden birding today was generally quiet but 34 Tree Sparrows on the feeders, 2 pairs of Grey Partridge squabbling in the back field, a male Great spotted Woodpecker, 11 Meadow Pipits in the field and a Bullfinch in the cherry tree in a neighbours garden were all nice to see. There was nothing in the way of fly overs, maybe due to the bitterly cold breeze. I'll total my full list as of Saturday and post it later...
|Great, Blue and Coal Tits ( not pictured) are always present.|
|We have a lot of Jackdaws in the village. They predate my Tree Sparrow chicks when they fledge so I tend to keep them at arms length.|
|A male Great spotted Woodpecker, one of a couple of pairs here.|
|Tree Sparrows out number House Sparrows here, but both are the mainstay of my garden birds.|
