We too have increased our feeding in the last couple of days, including a trip to the butchers to get some bones and scraps. Our garden list today is;
Bullfinch (male &
Great spotted woodpecker
Brambling ( female has been
around for best part of a week)
Siskin ( up to 20+ mixed flock of
male & females, these have been with us on and off for about 3 weeks)
seen but not on or near the
feeders Pied wagtail, treecreeper.
As well as the butchers bones and
scraps, we are feeding mixed seed, peanuts, fatballs, black sunflower seeds,
sunflower hearts, meal worms, sultanas, and home made lard cakes, we also make
sure there is a supply of water that is not frozen.
A similar variety of species to mine, from a site 25 miles away, although I haven't had Brambling, Long-tailed Tit or Bullfinch recently, just lots of House Sparrows.
