Garden Bird List for 2015
Juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker on garden feeders the summer before last
I can't remember when my year Garden Bird Species List got off to such a poor start - only 15 species seen so far this year.
Great Spotted Woodpecker
Long Tailed Tit
Sadly, no Chaffinches, Greenfinches or Lesser Redpolls. I think weather may be playing a part or perhaps there is plenty of natural food available this Winter so there is no need for birds to visit feeders. This year we haven't had much snow (any that has fallen has melted within hours). In past years when snow has covered the ground for several days more unusual species, such as Fieldfare, Redwing and Pied Wagtail, have visited the garden.
