Snowbound in Branton

Apart from brief forays out with the dog birding today was spent in the comfort and warmth of the house.The monotony of looking at endless miles of white was broken by a constant stream of birds to the feeders in the garden,various members of the Tit family and a Great Spotted Woodpecker on the nuts whilst seed on the ground attracted Chaffinches, Tree Sparrows, House Sparrows, Bramblings and a couple of Reed Buntings, a sure sign of bad weather as we only get this species when food is in short supply around the ponds. Lets hope all of these birds are around next weekend for the RSPB garden birdwatch.
