More birds and a mammal

We have added coal tit and goldfinch to the birds spotted on the feeder and we have seen a field vole in the garden.

Siskin and hedgehog

There was a siskin on the feeder last night and a hedgehog trundling across the patio.

New home patch

We have moved. We are now based in Wolsingham in Weardale.

I haven't had much time for natural history given the amount of box emptying and sorting that has been going on but I have managed to set up feeders in the garden and keep a record of birds seen.

So far we have Blackbird, Song Thrush, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Dunnock, House Sparrow, Greenfinch, Jackdaw, Cuckoo (heard), Swift, Swallow, House Martin, Black Headed Gull. Wood Pigeon, Collared Dove, Starling, Heron, Wren, Chaffinch and Great Spotted Woodpecker.
