30th Dec 2019

This will be last post for this year, with a couple of sunrises, which have been spectacular, but as soon as it appears the clouds descend and it’s back to dark and dismal.
Another shot of Goldfinches feeding on Niger seed on the ground under the feeders, others are on the hanging feeder, total flock af approximately 15 every day.

All the best for next year,

Birds at the feeders

When we arrived at the feeders this morning the birds were already out in force, normally they only arrive after we have topped up, yesterdays cold wind must have depleted their energy.
Attached is a link to a video clip playing at half speed.

Tuesday 19th November

Not very much has changed over the past weeks,but the views are still spectacular. Occasional visit by a Swan, and a Heron, usual ducks, Mallards, Teal and Tufted. Lots of activity at the feeders, especially at feeding time, took some shots this morning on Geoff’s bench, but the light was not great.

2nd November catch up

The swans left about four weeks ago, a single one returned for a few days, possibly the remaining male from the original pair, but the water level in the ponds is very high at the moment and maybe the weed is difficult to reach.
A couple of Herons are regularly seen on the ponds, there is always plenty of food for them.
The duck population consists of lots of Mallards, a few Teal, a handful of Tufted and the odd Merganser, a poor show at the moment.
The feeders are well attended, with two Greater Spotted Woodpecker and three Jays regular visitors.
The new Coastal path was completed a month ago but the posts have not yet been fitted with any information.
Attached are photos taken over the last few weeks.
