Things appear to be still progressing well at the set up.
Popped over this morning for a couple of hours, mainly to top up the feeders and the water supply. It was pleasing to see them eventually drinking from the water bowls (Upturned plastic dustbin lids )
Highlight of the morning was a Green Woodie who spent about ten minutes in the tree above the feeding station, calling for his mate.
Must find out where the ant hills are
I have everything in place now, so I can shoot from at least three different positions, depending on the time of day and also the actual light itself.
Bird/Animal count who have visited or been in close proximity to the station is updated as follows:-
* Indicates no chance yet of a half decent photograph
Longtailed tits-Who I now talk to and refer to them as "The boys"
Great spotted woodpecker *
Goldfinch-Only seen the one *
Coal tit-Briefly yesterday *
It is a pity that I didn't have everything in place last Autumn, but that isn't a complaint, just a reflection hopefully of things to come
Thanks for taking the time to read
Best wishes to all
