I also have my bird feeders where I can see them from my chair. I regularly have a nuthatch this year, though never before. Also spotted woodpecker, a blackcap (new this year)as well as the usual tits, robins, blackbirds etc. Occasionally a sparrowhawk comes to try his luck. I have at least 8 long tailed tits in and out every day, and this morning a thrush came to inspect the ground feeder. I have a pond and break the ice every day so the birds can still drink. It is very rewarding, despite nearly bankrupting me!
