Harehope Hillend.

    The snowy spell has ment more time watching the feeders and has been interesting. Plenty of the usual Coal Tits,Blue and Great, but also a gang of seven Long Tailed at times. For three days we even had a pair of Marsh Tits, which were good to see.  Waring Blackbirds and Robins and a bad tempered Siskin or two.
Great Spotted Woodpeckers in numbers are very regular, and one drumming when the sun tried to shine.
Nuthatch are another regular and the number of Chaffinches have gradually increased but no other finches.
One more unusual visitor is a Jay, not too welcome because it has a habit of destroying nut feeders. Regular sorties by the local Sparrowhawk adds to the action.
