I was home again today with an ill 2 year old. Yet another opportunity to chart the comings and goings at the garden feeder. Significantly more birds today than on Friday with minimum of 10 each of House and Tree Sparrow and Greenfinch. Fewer Blue and Great Tits today though but the Robin is still around. Highlight though was 2 male Redpolls which hung around for a while. One was at the whiter end of the spectrum and invited thought of an Artic Redpoll briefly.
The forecast is for temperatures down to -15C by the end of this week so maybe this will result in an even further increase in bird numbers.
