And there's going to be a lot more of it this week. I called at my feeding station on Rawcliffe Moss on my way home and had a walk down the track carrying two full buckets of seed in the pouring rain. Nice! Through my rain lashed and steamed up glasses I could see that there was about 50 Tree Sparrows at the feeding station. Back at the barn where the food is stored two Grey Wagtails fed around the base of the 'tailing's' mountain.
What we need is a bit of colour to brighten things up and I think the picture of the Eastern Bluebird below from Nigel does just that. Now I wouldn't mind pulling that out of a mist net at Rossall School!
