March 6
Two Siskins on the niger seed feeder in the fig tree feeding station. We had a single female in January, a pair this time, the male moulting into breeding plumage.
Coal Tits are often present, Marsh Tits occasionally, ever present are Blue Tits, Great Tits, Chaffinches, Blackbirds and up to a dozen pheasants (b. nuisance, they trample the flower beds and leave droppings everywhere). A small flock of House Sparrows is usually noisily present too.Daily visits from Greenfinches and Goldfinches. The Long-tailed Tit flocks must have gone off to pair and nest.
Maybe a visit to Winterton this afternoon - after the Man U/Liverpool match.
Really exciting cricket this morning, England beat South Africa by 7 runs in the end. Phew.......
Must proof read the GYBC Newsletter before posting it to-morrow.
