Garden News - 13th February 2011
Just a quick update with a new "year tick" from the garden in the shape of a Siskin. The bird, a male, was spotted with approximately 15 Goldfinch in the trees this morning and fed for a bout 3 minutes before flying away. Managed to get just 1 half-decent shot through the branches and the rain!!
Other birds present today were: the white Blackbird, 2 Dunnock, 3 House Sparrows, the nest-building Magpies, 2 Greenfinch and a Woodpigeon. All records were sent in to the BTO's Garden Birdwatch Scheme.
