Last autumn, we had a lot of trees taken down around our garden, but it took Dave reminding me of this, to understand why there were so few birds feeding on our table all winter! They had lost their shelters and feeding grounds. But with this cold spell and the winds, I have the most colourful flock feeding for safety on the ground. I counted 5 Goldfinches this morning, the only trouble is the little swines pull all the sunflower seeds out of the feeder, I’m getting through loads. I have Bullfinches, Chaffinches, Greenfinches, Spotted woodpecker, all the tit family,but sadly no squirrels as I think their dreys went with the trees.
I know a lot of shots are still blurred, I’ll soon get the knack with the new camera……..
