Interestingly when I totalled up the number of species physically in the garden and not out at sea or flying over I have hit 30 species this year.

Not very early but surprisingly much. But they are all gone for now...
Last night the temperature fell to -10 degrees.

Richard, Redwings are on their way... Fielfares and waxwings we keep here for a while.

The bee hives are right next to where it was hanging out, although it was also eating butterflies yesterday.

I have put out some more black oil sunflower seeds, hoping for some northern migrates to stop by for a snack. Sometimes we get Red-winged Crossbills, Redpolls and the like in the winter months. None of those have shown up so far. Just been having Blue Jays, Northern Cardinals, Black-capped Chickadees, White-breasted Nuthatches, House Finches, an occasional American Robin and many House Sparrows. Perhaps if we get some some colder weather and some snow we might get some of the migrates coming through.
Good Birding to all.

Na, shove off!

Bit quiet here, though caught both White-backed Woodpecker and Sparrowhawk (for ringing) at my feeders in the last couple of days.

You're wellcome. Now you can send me hmm... Lammergeier would be nice.

At last, they are here:

#60. Waxwing


Now I can send them to the south.

Also I saw yesterday three Pine Grosbeaks. But that was about 15 km from my home. Hopefully I can see lots of more of them at this winter.

What? Is there somebody else who might be interested...?
