Having commitments all week this morning was the first time I could get down.

What a mistake! As it was just after ten am. It was like Butlins & Pontins rolled into one.

RUCKS. H.Sparrows. Starlings. Robin. Blue Tits. Blackbirds. Magpie. (h) Bullfinch. C.Crow. Wren. Coal Tit. GT.Tit.

WEIR. Only saw a couple of Sm. Trout jumping to-day.

TOP LODGE. Grey Heron. 1Moorhen. 14 Blk.H.Gulls.

BIG LODGE. 3Mute Swans & 2Cygnets. 44Mallard. 1Cormorant. 1Moorhen. 5Coot. App. 150 Blk.H.Gulls.

Are.the birds boycotting our feeding station?. While I was there. not one bird came. they all flew over and fed on the table in the channel.Yet there was plenty of seeds on it.

When I was down there yesterday early morning, there was lots of duck food on the feeding tables, which I brushed off & replaced with a quality bird food mix. After 20 mins the only birds that turned up were a magpie & a blue tit.
I'm sure the birds will use the feeding station when the weather turns colder.
