Record Numbers

The new look feeder station has certainly been a hit with our garden birds.
A staggering 22 Blue Tits and 13 Long-tailed Tits descended upon the station this afternoon at the same time. If you imagine a few Chaffinch, Coal Tits, Great Tits, Robin, Blackbirds Sparrows, Starlings , Dunnock, Goldfinches and Collared Dove also around  you would have to agree it was a rare sight indeed. This time last year we were lucky to have 3 Blue Tits and the odd L.T.T.
Times have certainly changed.
The breeding season has been a huge success with  families of  Bullfinches , Wrens, Magpies, Jays and off course the roof top Swifts.also chipping in to keep the numbers up.
