One of the starlings on one of the feeding trays had a white tail feathers :scratch: . Very peculiar to see something like that. It really stood out :eek:

I saw a wren today eating from half coconut suet :clap: , I'm so thrilled to see it, this is the first time I see that little delightful bird in my garden :love:
There was also a great spotted woodpecker, who scared away all the birds, but it didn't stay long. Dunnock was there too :nod: Very busy garden indeed, I'm thinking of implementing a ticket system for the feeders :laugh:

First spot for many years: a redwing :eek: :clap: !!!
In the rowan tree with blackbirds. It came back many times; saw it about 6 times between 11.30 and 3.30. Full up with Vit C by dusk !!

Yesterday there were three :eek:. Maybe the 'one' I saw on Sunday were singular visits from three ??
Aaaanyway, intriguingly I noticed that yesterday it/they were much more adept at reaching the rowan berries than the day before. Mulling it over during the night :shrug:.

I saw a blackcap today for the first time :clap: . He helped himself to a few suet pellets and flew off. I hope it comes back on regular basis, such a nice looking bird :D
