    We erected a LDBWS sign on site a few days back. We should have done this earlier because the birds, having read up on our objectives have finally got the idea and are feeding regularly.

    Today there were up to 22 Chaffinches, 12 Linnets, four Reed Buntings and a Stock Dove feeding on the ground seed (c 8 metres left of the table as viewed from the double gate) and mid-single figures of Chaffinch, Robin, Great Tit and Blue Tit coming to the seed on the table.

    Also in the immediate vicinity a male Kestrel, two Mistle Thrushes and three Song Thrushes (two of which were in sub-song).

    Please visit and let us know your species and counts. The viewing area is on the public footpath at SD467605 by Pony Wood.
