Garden Feeder to-day

Thursday March 21
Not the first time for a Great Spotted Woodpecker, this female is fairly regular at the moment.

BUT, the first for a non flyover Redpoll. These look like Mealy Redpoll to me. I had to take the photos through the kitchen window and into the light - and they refused to respond to my pleas that they turn round and show me their rumps and tails. Certainly very pale birds. I've had to rule out possible Arctic because of the front only views. Maybe they'll return. Oh for a Hornemann's.....

Lee Evans has confirmed that they are indeed Mealy Repolls.
