As the extreme winter conditions continue it is becoming more and more difficult for the birds to feed themselves as the ground is snow covered and frozen. As a result more birds are being forced to visit our gardens to find food, harsh times for them but great for wildlife photographers to take advantage of. My own garden has got busier and busier as the bad weather continues, and it is great to see new visitors on a regular basis, such as Bullfinchs and Marsh Tits. A tough time so it is really important that we offer food in our gardens to see them over this tough time.
I would like to wish all my followers and readers of my blog a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Lots of Robins in the garden, constantly bickering and chasing each other
Brilliant to see Bullfinchs coming in regularly
A bird that I have not seen in the garden until recently, a Marsh Tit
Small groups of Long tailed tits descend onto the fatball feeder
My perennial favourite, Blue Tit
The blackbirds are slowly stripping the berries from the bushes
Another berry down the hatch!
