Eastern Promise

When the wind blew from the east on the 17th October I was not surprised to see my first Redwings of Winter. What did surprise me the following day was to find a female Brambling feeding in the garden, with a handful of Chaffinches. I have never before had a Brambling in the garden during October so it all augers well for a good Winter to follow , especially as there are already Waxwings in Yorkshire!

After three months off it is time to charge the camera batteries and find my fishing stool! The new hip is in place and I now able to put my sock on and fasten my shoe-laces!!
The big event of the last three months has been the appearance in the garden of a Badger. It has taken more than fifty years but we now have both Fox and Badger competing for food put out for Hedgehogs – of which we have none!! Wildlife moves in a funny way! www.facebook.com/gordonyateswildlife
