Have had a couple of the less common birds around the garden recently, a pair of Goldcrest in one of the old apple trees in the main garden and also a small group of Bullfinch by the log pile in the top garden.
Siskins are back again.
Lots of birds on the feeders, very hungry during the cold week in November, -9 the lowest temp., 2 days the day time temp was below freezing.
Lots of Fieldfares around and some Redwings too. Still plenty of berries around.
Changes in the garden too with the strawberry bed, blackcurrant bushes and a couple of fruit trees coming out, and new ones going in. The old strawberry raised bed has ornamental grasses and late flowering perennial's planted there now.
More changes planned for the narrow area outside the field side of the house.
