Bird Count

Hi, good to see Geof”s posting yesterday, hope you are feeling better.

At the long pond the 2 swans waddled over the ice to take some bread along with 4 mallard, and that was it,
very quiet.

The north feeder:- 1M-1F bullfinch,3 great tits, 2 blue tits, 4M-1F reed buntings, 2M-2F blackbirds, 5 chaffinch,
2 dunnocks, 4 robins, 13 greenfinch, 8 goldfinch……since starting my count on 24th Oct. 2011 this is the highest
number of goldfinch I have recorded here have seen charms of them in higher number feeding in the fields but not conducting a count then.

For the interested Brian and myself top up the feeders on a daily basis and we sit for approx. 10 – 20 minutes
counting and observing, Bri is usually busy with his camera clicking away for that winning photo’.
