And still it snows!

We have had snow cover now since 17th December. There is nearly 11" of snow in the garden and a 3'10" icicle on the conservatory door. The birds are going through seed at an enormous rate. I will be bankrupt if we don't get a thaw soon!

Garden Feeder activity

The extended cold and snowy weather is attracting a lot of birds to the garden seed feeder. In the last 24 hours we have had:
Great Tit, Coal Tit, Blue Tit, Dunnock, Tree Sparrow, Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Blackbird, Starling, Collared Dove, Yellowhammer (not Siskin - Thanks Liverbirder -Senior Moment, the cold must be getting to me ;-) ), Marsh Tit and Bullfinch.
