Garden Birding

Saturday 7th February 2008

A good day's birding from my conservatory today included a Hawfinch (showed briefly at midday), two Lesser Redpolls (photo above), a male Blackcap (photo below feeding on Mahonia nectar), two Song Thrushes, many Greenfinches and Chaffinches, two Goldfinches, two Great Tits a Long-tailed Tit, a Little Egret in flight over Dimore playing field, and a Buzzard being chased by two Carrion Crows. A few Fieldfares and Redwings were along the edge of Dimore playing field, and a Mistle Thrush was heard calling and later singing. Also a pair of Blue Tits were checking out the nest-box.

Below is a short movie of the Lesser Redpolls taken last Sunday:
