Bird feeders filled

Tuesday, December 29th 2009

All of the bird feeders were filled yet again today. The birds are really hungry after this prolonged cold spell which seems set to continue for the rest of the week.

Filling the bird feeders

A handful of volunteers came to help with this essential task. It took a while to get into the seed store due to the ice in the locks. You can see from this photo that the lake is still mostly frozen on the surface too. There are all kinds of animal tracks across the ice including Heron and Rabbit!

A dozen Fieldfare were seen in the trees in the garden directly behind the Field Centre. Other birds at the feeders included Brambling, Bullfinch, Chaffinch and Great Spotted Woodpecker.
