First Session of the Winter at the Feeding Station
Although I have been putting food out for the birds at the feeding station for the last couple of months, today was the first opportunity I have had for photography. This was partly because the mild weather during November meant that the leaves stayed on the trees much longer than normal and it was too dark in the plantation. Whilst putting food out, however, there was plenty of activity with blue and great tits, chaffinches, greenfinches and goldfinches all being present in good numbers. There have also been smaller numbers of dunnock, robins, the occasional wren and a couple of magpies. I have seen the woodpecker on one or two occasions and it paid a visit today but didn't stay to feed. Perhaps the most exciting is the pair of bullfinches that have been around; hopefully they will become regulars.
