Weather is still confining my birding to the garden and generally the village.
I am still energetically keeping up with filling the feeders and the numbers of birds visiting the garden are increasing. Starlings are the most numerous and Chaffinches continue to increase but still no Brambling. There were two new visitors to the feeding area today - a Redwing feeding on a nearby holly tree and perhaps more surprising for here a Mistle Thrush feeding on berries from a different bush.
For the first time for days the temperature has lifted a bit with our lane showing tarmac exposed for most of its surface.
Maybe it will continue to ease off and give some respite to the birds.
