Garden Birds

The Dunnocks are back in the garden and in  slightly larger numbers than last winter.  I counted 4 today.  These little ground feeders are doing well around the bird feeders.
The Goldfinches always take advantage of the seeds in winter and they come in ever increasing numbers.  With the advent of another run of cold weather they are monopolising the feeders and queueing in the nearby trees and bushes for a place at the feed.
This Goldfinch is is on lookout to spot an empty feeder perch.

The feeders are running down very swiftly at present, mostly by visiting Grey Squirrels.  We are seeing 2 pairs of Bullfinches regularly and occasionally being visited by a Great Spotted Woodpecker.
