20 Apil 13 At the Hide

22nd April 2013
I visited the hide on Saturday filled the feeders with feed and sat and waited. Being truthful I was expecting nothing as it had been three weekends since I last visited and I received it in abundance.

It was about an hour before I seen a bird which was a Wren flitting about in the undergrowth but by the time I’d got the camera trained in the right area, it was on its way.

Great Tit

I had a few visits from Blue and Great Tits and male and female Chaffinch and a single Goldfinch. The only other bird that visited the area was a Long-tailed Tit that stayed in the conifers for a few minutes and then moved on.

Long-tailed Tit

No Robins, Sparrows, Blackbirds or even Pheasants so a really poor show.

There were plenty of Woodpigeons and Corvids flying over and I could hear Buzzards calling but couldn’t see any.

As it is light in the evenings now it should be easier to keep the feeders topped up and hopefully that will encourage the birds back.

Thanks for reading
