After a busy week at work its really nice to sit in the garden and watch the birds come into the feeders - helps me relax. After a couple of weeks where the number of birds visiting the garden had dropped, this last week has been very busy, no doubt because there are youngsters to feed.
This evening there was the usual crowd of Sparrows plus at least six different Greenfinches (no juvs yet), several Chaffinches and passing parties of Goldfinches. The Redpolls put in an appearance again - the male is one of the brightest I've ever seen, as did the Bullfinches (at least three) and an unexpected female Reed Bunting. The garden will be busy with juveniles pretty soon I think judging on the activity of the adult Great and Blue Tits.
