Very busy at the bird feeder today! (1 Viewer)

How about these Mike, circa 140 years old…and still looking fresh!
Be interesting to know how they did it? 😮👍

Stumbled to the bedroom window bleary eyed this am, saw this Redwing beneath me looking up, grabbed the camera hitting the shutter, but it wouldn’t focus.😩
What seemed like an eternity of shutter pressing producing nowt, it finally focused just before it flew off, amazed at the image considering it was through double glazing! 👍

Put some nyger seed up in the week. Good to have a male Siskin on it yesterday. Pair of Nuthatch in the garden and a couple of Red Kites over a few days ago.
 
Working from home today and the garden was full of common birds. Nuthatch, 3 Jays, Dunnocks. Highlight was the first Greenfinch in the garden of the year (unfortunately very scarce here now) and the male Siskin back. Apologies for the junk photos but my camera was misted up from being kept in the car overnight.

Noticed an upturn in “action” yesterday, 15 Goldfinches around the feeders, normally 5,
my 8th Goldcrest for the year, a Blckp.pair + my 9th Red Kite over.
Three Sprawks displaying outback, followed by at least two “flybys” to include a female Sprawk being escorted off the premises by a Corvid…and the “rogue” Redwing is getting closer.😊

Siskin have been visiting in the last few days, calling and singing when not on feeders. Up to 6 today and they brought along a friend.......only the 2nd ever in 23 years for the garden, a rather shy Lesser Redpoll but most welcome, albeit for just a few minutes. Brought a grin to a rather dull day.

Only had one flyover calling Redpoll, one flyover Waxwing, and just the two visits from Siskin this Winter, hoping there might be more from the latter, as they are normally far more frequent.🙏

We had lots of Redpoll years ago in another house we lived in, hoping to get them here one day. I know if Siskins visit then there os a chance they will bring along some Redpolls one day 👍
