Garden birding

A day working from home allowed me to observe the comings and goings in the garden and I was surprised by the numbers of birds. Best were 2 male Bullfinches feeding on seedheads, 2 Fieldfares feeding on fallen apples, a male Blackbird and a Robin finding food under the feeders and on the feeders a couple of Greenfinches, at least 10 Great Tits, 4 Blue Tits, 6 Tree Sparrows and around 10 House Sparrows. The Great Tits are looking to be very healthy with shiny plumage and seeming good body weight - in previous years they have looked very taty so presumeably this summer and autumn has been good for them.

    Nice to read about your friends in your garden!
    All the birds you mention also live arond our house in Tumba south of Stockholm. It´s a pleasure to feed them and I got a real surprise last week when a Hawfinch was under my feeder!/Lena
