I spent most of the day today visiting and replenishing the eight wild bird feed stations that we manage with the support of colleagues. These stations include suspended feeders as well as broadcast seed in an effort to try and support the species associated with the habitat. Like yesterday it was remarkably mild out for the time of the year with large numbers of insects active in the sunshine!
At Harrington Airfield (one of the feeding stations) I met 'Dave' and 'Robin' who had been watching 3 Bramblings and 15 Grey Partridges enjoying the feast! Robin had seen 2 Waxwings briefly in the top of a tree earlier today at Orlingbury Hall.
