Very busy at the bird feeder today! (2 Viewers)

Hi, like to check in on here once in a while. Good to see this thread getting some more action although I’m guilty of not participating as much as I used to. Been a good winter so far, had some regular Bramblings but not seen more than 2 at a time. Had lots of Greenfinches and Goldfinches, and in the last couple of weeks a Siskin who then mist have brought his friends along as we had 4 or 5 this week. Also an attack from a Sparrowhawk which I caught on my cameras. Will post it but don’t want to upset anyone as he does catch a Greenfinch, but it’s pretty quick and the quality when uploaded may not show this. Anyway here’s some Siskins from this week.
 
I’ve never been able to image both Nuthatch’s together at “the diner” before, until this am, has anybody else enjoyed this spectacle?
As normal modus operandi is….one zaps off before the other lands, assumed that territory rights were sacrosanct, or might they be a pair?

Cheers

Two quite regular here Ken. Three and arguments begin. 4 and it’s like Nuthatch Armageddon 😂
 
Really quiet here all week. Robins, coal tit and a few chaffinches making daily appearances, occasional visits from bullfinch and goldfinch thrown into the mix.
 
Early yesterday am, this (1st image) bird flew in stealth mode and secreted itself accordingly in the grdn.Ash, only to fly out after 15 minutes. Then (presumed the same bird), returned some 20 mins later and landed even closer still, almost holding moi in contempt…and it sat there for some 45 mins!
Nowt queer as Sprawks! 👍

How about shipping me over some of those lichen covered branches for my setup perches?
