The top four boxes were built by my own fair hands
and the bottom ones kindly donated to us.
Whilst working on my boxes this afternoon this little fellow was picking up
sunflower hearts that the Goldfinches had dropped. As long as he/she
stays outdoors it will be okay!
I made a brief visit to my feeding station yesterday and logged a male Yellowhammer, 18 Corn Buntings, a drumming Great Spotted Woodpecker, 12 Chaffinches, a Little Owl, 200 Lapwings, 80 Tree Sparrows and two Long-tailed Tits.
A brief visit to feeding station number 2 to feed the Turnstones this morning resulted in 80 coming to the food with eight leg-flagged birds amongst them.
If you look carefully you can see two leg flagged birds amongst these
The forecast is looking settled for the next couple of days so I am hoping to perhaps have a last ringing session at my feeding station Saturday morning before switching my attention to the coast next week in readiness for Spring migration at the obs. I can't wait!
