Garden Records

December 13, 2015 at 6:39 pm

For some reason whenever we have wet weather there are lots of birds feeding in the garden. This week has been exceptional with two garden records being broken after 47 years! Firstly on the 11th seven Bullfinches came to feed together and comprised of five males and two females. The following day, at 9.00am, an incredible 39 Goldfinches were present either on the feeders or on the ground. I tried to make it forty but could not find the extra one! Click here

The only bird movements during the week was the appearance of Goosanders locally along the canal with a pair and four others seen.
