Static finches

Hi

Apologies for the lack of information the last couple of days.  We have both been committed with a variety of tasks during the last two days which has curtailed much of our birding.  The few bits we have noticed are simply repeats of birds during the last week with still daily sightings of Raven here at Hanging Houghton and still regular Bramblings at Harrington Airfield, here at Hanging Houghton and Kelmarsh Hall.  Ringing recoveries seem to suggest that at least some of the current Lesser Redpolls and Bramblings are the same birds that were here locally in November and they have remained reliant on the food placed out for them during that time.  However that is soon to change I think and these finches will soon begin to move more freely again as Spring beckons around the corner (but with snow to come first yet methinks)!

Regards

Neil M
