Back to the patch!

5/03/11
I had to see if the Bramblings were still around, and luckilly they were.
A pair were still visiting the garden, however they were still being as flighty as ever, so here is a video of a siskin Instead..

So then it was for a walk into the Birchwood, which over the 2nd half of the winter has turned into my patch heaven!!


And what do you know


BRAMBLINGS.


8+ to be a little more spacific, and a very hard to observe flock as they were in the lower parts of the woodland in the hawthorn clumps and comuting to a nearby stream to drink and preen.I managed some videos at the stream.
