Ok .. this is long overdue … and should be accompanied by photos … I know .. but it will happen.
For now though, there is a flurry of activity outside the window with lovely Goldfinches attracted to their speciality Niger seed and Greenfinches back in action making a real mess under the bird feeder. But, Santa’s Robin and the crows are cleaning that up, helped by our own hens who have a continuous supply of food 🙂
Lots of sparrows … house sparrows … blue tits, great tits, some coal tits.
Further down the fields, in the woodland, there seem to be lots of blackbirds … annoyed with us, when we stroll down through the trees, disturbing them on their turf … sorry …
