Confined to Barracks...

When the weather is as good as it has been today and I find myself confined to the house with a heavy workload, it's just as well there's something to distract me in the garden. This morning the (presumably same) male Brambling made a return visit having been absent since 27 February. A welcome sight indeed. The Siskin numbers hit a high of 33 and have now settled back to a regular 18 each day and I've just had my first Green Woodpecker at Whitestaunton, new to the garden list.

Meanwhile the sheer volume of birds visiting the feeders seems to be eating us out of house and home. It's a constant job keeping everything topped-up but worth it just to hear the Siskins singing and calling just outside the back door all day long.

Dunnock: R. Harris
Blue Tit looking rather smart: R.\ Harris
Siskin, male: R. Harris
Goldfinch, R. Harris
Another Siskin, boy, do things pack away the
sunflower hearts!
Siskin, female: R. Harris
Song Thrush, don't get too many of
these in the garden.
At least it's nearly the weekend. Just hope this weather continues for a bit longer yet.
