Over recent days the garden visitors have been raiding the feeders in an effort to stay alive as the temperatures have regularly stayed below freezing point. Obtaining any images through the window has not been easy but here are a few of the regulars.
House Sparrow numbers peaked at 16 two days ago.
Greenfinch visits were very sporadic last month but again their numbers have increased very recently.
Other regular visitors have been Great, Blue and a single Coal Tit, the resident Robin, Woodpigeons, Collared Doves, Blackbirds and Dunnock plus occasional forays from Magpies. Unusual visitors have been single visits by a Jay and both a male and female Chaffinch (I'm not sure the last time we recorded this species in the garden). With more bad weather forecast I need to purchase some more feed. FAB.
