As the weather was still behaving itself I decided to return to Scallows and try for the coal tits and nuthatches. When I arrived, I set up a log for a perch and settled down to wait. There was plenty of tit activity but no nuthatches appeared, although a solitary chicken had to be chased off. I decided to go for a wander and try my luck later. When I returned, there was not one chicken but the whole lot accompanied by the magnificent cockerel. They had cleaned up all of my peanuts and sunflower seed, though, back to the drawing board!!!
