Merry Christmas

To all visitors to my Blog and followers a very Merry Christmas.

Festive 'Red' male Bullfinch pictured a couple of days ago, a bit too distant but more of that later. Have a good day.

Winter Snack

We went up to High Moor in Wykeham Forest on Saturday after some of the early snow on Thursday & Friday (before Saturday evenings deluge).

I don't know what has happened to the bird feeding station that was there (informal). All the remaining feeders were empty, perhaps unfortunately some older ladies who used to be regularly feeding the birds can no longer make it. However, the seed tray attached to the tree has gone, all you seem to get is people just parking up and going off, maybe biking much to the chagrin of anyone who might want to observe the birds. If only they parked to one side of the feeders.

In fairness it is hard to spot anymore that it is a feeding place for the birds. Why though would you go into the forest have a few bottles (lots of) larger, bag up all the rubbish and bottles and leave two bags of rubbish on the car park! No doubt the Forestry Commision have to clear this up.

Anyway a few seeds and nuts later and there were lots of Coal Tits flying in and a Robin (of course) and the odd Blue Tit, Great Tit.
