The numbers at the feeders has now increased to 6 males and 5 females, the couple of photos attached were taken using a wildlife camera strapped to a branch above the table. Notice that the male at the back has fungus on his legs.

Bullfinch with fungus legs

Managed to take a photo this morning of the Male Bullfinch with bad legs, not very clear but it can be seen, according to RSPB site this maybe completely different to the Chaffinch strain, hopefully it will not spread through the others.

Mistle Thrushes are not often seen on the reserve but there was one calling on the airfield fence this morning.

Low Lying Mist

This morning there was no real height required to see an inversion, the mist was lying very low, see a few shots.

The cygnet is still with it’s parents and looking very well, six more landed on the pond this morning but were soon chased off by the resident male.
