A damp, drizzerley and still very cold day here in Northants, I think without sunshine at any stage of the day.
I could hear a Brambling or two at Harrington Airfield in the half-light of dawn this morning as I was spreading out their daily breakfast! A similar story at Kelmarsh Hall with singing Siskins adding their vocalisation to a background of calling redpolls and Bramblings.
I was fortunate to visit a East Hunsbury garden today at the invitation of our county recorder Mike Alibone. The garden feeders are attracting good numbers of Siskins and Lesser Redpolls at the moment but also one or two redpolls of debatable identity (not seen today). An estimated 40 Siskins and 15 Lesser Redpolls were visiting the garden during the three hour period.
