Something was bound to turn up!

28th February

Heavy snow overnight made me keen to keep an eye on the birds in the garden and in the field across. Eventually redwing and fieldfare turned up not only in the field but in the conifers in the garden and eventually on the ground under our feeders. The redwing were fleeting  and nervous. Skylark also seen feeding on the ground in the field. The fieldfare posed in the back garden. A few more common visitors today.

In the afternoon the redwing appeared in the garden as well.

Next day...

March 1st

Not as many birds about. The song thrush has a prominent brown cap - not always as obvious as this. Also, tree sparrow still with the house sparrows.

The important visitors turned up late morning... ...and so did these regulars!
