I've just registered for the RSPB annual garden bird watch, and for the last few days a green woodpecker has been visiting the old apple tree to breakfast on the last remaining apples, whilst a fieldfare has been content to sample those left on the ground.
I bet they will be nowhere to be seen on counting weekend!
and where have all the goldfinches gone? we had a couple arrive one day on the niger seed, but mostly none at all.
