Winter is still firmly ensconced here. The snow is hanging on in many areas and looks like it is going to be supplemented soon. A difficult time for most wildlife.
I can still get to the hide most days; opportunities for wintry birds are always there. New snow has fallen overnight, turning to rain now.
As well as the "usuals" I am still getting Nuthatch. Long-tailed tits and Woodpeckers are regular. Amongst the commoner stuff you hope for something a bit rarer. The seed has attracted Finches, Siskin, Goldfinch and Greenfinch so I wasn't too surprised to get a Brambling. Bramblings migrate to us in winter, sometimes forming big flocks but many hang out in Chaffinch flocks. This is a female; the day before a male visited.
