Let the Sun Shine.

Managed 3 hrs in the hide today, was pleased by the number of visitors, Jay, GSW, Magpie, Long tailed tit, Blue tit, Great Tit, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Blackbird, Robin, House Sparrow and Squirrel.

The Jay swooped down grabbed a peanut and disappeared in a second or two, so no pic of him. The GSW stayed at the back of the hedge on an apple tree so no pic of him, and no decent pic of the Magpie or Blackbird.

A small flock of about 5 Long tails came to visit.

The Goldfinch would pop down for a feed then disappear for about 30 mins before coming back.

The Blue tits and Great tits come regularly.

The House Sparrows give lots of photo opportunities.

Robin red breast is gorgeous.

But star of this post is a very acrobatic Squirrel, this is a male.

This was just as the last of the light was fading, he was grabbing a peanut from the feeder, which he has just about destroyed and eating it whilst hanging..

I haven't managed to snap a fieldfare on Mistle Thrush as yet, may have to temporarily relocate the hide for them. The Jay would be a lovely addition if I could get them coming more often.
