Although it is still early February there are more birds singing around the village. The familiar robin has been joined by dunnock, wren and goldcrest. For the last few days a song thrush has been singing in a tree behind our house. Winter visiting thrushes, fieldfare and redwing have been evident for some months and the resident mistle thrushes are usually easy to see but I’ve seen little evidence of song thrushes so it’s nice to hear one singing away.
In the garden our feeders are still mainly visited by tits. Blue, great and coal tits are always around joined by parties of long-tailed tits when we put fat-balls out. Occasionally there is a visit from a marsh tit. RP
