The coal tit only visited briefly, but the feeders were swarming with blue tits for most of yesterday. Bluetits will take peanuts from the windowsill even when the window is open and I’m sitting beside it.
An even larger group of goldfinches were in residence. Each seems to have a favourite feeder but only a couple are confident to wander away from the flock. So far none have ventured onto the windowsill, which is just as well today because I’d sneeze on them.
That’s it for now, the lurgy has won. Going to lie in bed and listen to the birds – there’s quite a racket out there!
