Good birding there today. Thanks to everyone who has donated seed money to the project.
Reed Bunting 14
Lesser Redpoll 1
(but still no Tree Sprogs!)
Getting very goosey in Pilling today (with Tundra Bean, Lesser and Russian White-fronted Goose to be had) but my birding was at the LDBWS feeding station*. Watching 90 Linnets enjoying the seed I'd just put down was a big buzz: https://t.co/B9xBYsPOQH pic.twitter.com/9FDLgBkuxE

Our ‘grain mountain’ is dwindling and were hoping to carry on the supplementary feeding for another three or four weeks.
Is anybody able to help in purchasing a 25kg sack of this? https://www.gardenwildlifedirect.co.uk/no-wheat-wild-bird-seed-mix.html
The birds are fond of sunflower chips and we have a good few kilos of those in stock (in my back room) but this particular mix is going down well too.

Have you got a delivery address for new seed.

I hope you and Mal don’t mind. To keep the project going until Spring I have ordered a bag of sunflower hearts to be dropped off at the above address. It should be with you in the next seven days. I have been able on a handful of occasions to see the results at the station. Remarkable. With the number of chaffinches it is quite surprising a brambling hasn’t cropped up….perhaps in passing soon??
