Goldcrest Drop In

The Southerly winds have delayed the arrival of migrants following the first Redwings, Fieldfares and Brambling last week. However, Goldcrest have been calling in the garden and also from parts of Hopwood Woods. As soon as we have an Easterly wind the remaining Fieldfares and Woodcock should come flooding in. Perhaps some Waxwings?

In the garden despite putting out very little sunflower seed we have had male and female Sparrowhawk, fourteen Starlings, fourteen Goldfinches, fourteen House Sparrows, four Long Tailed Tits and a daily male Great SpottedWoodpecker. Hopefully the disease that struck our garden birds will have disappeared and full feeding can soon resume.
