Garden birdwatch 2011

Posted in birds, garden, goldfinch, oxfordshire, photography, Uncategorized, wildlife with tags , , , on 30 January 2011 by bramblejungle

Freezing conditions, but bird numbers pretty much the same as in the last 2 years except the goldfinches – didn’t make the count last year, now almost a fixture on the feeders. A song thrush obligingly visited the bird bath, and a squirrel stole the fat ball: I replaced it before the count; the squirrel hasn’t been back yet.

Guess who stole the fat ball

Here are the results:
