A Soggy Day!

Monday, February 11th 2013

Although the weather is so cold and wet and snowy things are stirring.  Honeysuckle buds have burst and the first leaves are showing bright green.  Most usually have accompanying droplets of water!

Flower buds can be seen on the male Holly trees.

The bird ringers were in this morning and over 100 birds were processed from just two nets in the back garden.   This reflects the number of birds coming to the reserve to feed during the bad weather.  There were over 40 new birds ringed, including Siskin, Lesser Redpoll, Brambling, Coal Tits, Blue Tits and Great Tits.
