Greenfinches that have been missing for several months have returned along with Goldfinches that feed almost non stop on the Niger seed. A Great Spotted Woodpecker makes regular visits which poses the question as to wether this is one of a breeding pair from last year.
The visiting Moorhens are showing unusual behaviour. Clambering up on the metal framework they feed greedily from the seed feeder. Not to be outdone a Pheasent does likewise!
