Garden birds.

The cold weather has meant birds flocking to the feeders which are being emptied on a daily basis. Latest addition is a female Blackcap that turned up last weekend and is making inroads into the fat feeders. With the local pond frozen two Moorhens have been resident feedign on grain I've put down for them.

I finally caught up with a flock of Redpolls in Stanney Woods - theres about 20 in one flock with a possible Mealy amongst them but I'll need better views to nail it. Maybe there will be an Arctic on the Wirral this winter as well.
