Despite the wind, this morning one more indication that spring is really here: the first Common Redstart, heard by G during his morning constitutional.
I went for my combined walk/run too, almost stepping on a Blackbird that was foraging in the middle of the path. One lap later in exactly the same spot, a Blue Tit flew on the bare branch of a chestnut tree. I also saw Black Redstart and Collared Dove. Earlier from the kitchen window we had seen at least 3 Hawfinch, the usual Siskins and heard Green Woodpecker. At the feeders also Coal and Great Tit.
Fingers crossed for tomorrows' Birders Big Bird Watch as more wind is forecast. ��
Nice selection, eleven species that I did not see today
Great 4th image - a wintery shot of the Hawfinch.
I'm sorry I didn't respond yesterday but I was too busy laughing - and feeling outplayed - bravo! :t:
I’ve not had Siskins, but Brambling passing the whole winter here, and like you with the Siskins, the numbers have dropped down and down this past week until the past three days just two females were left, this morning they weren’t around, I’ll miss them.
