Wow! Already last day of February! Only popped down today to fill feeders and put some food out for birds.
Also did a small bird count:- 5- Long-tailed Tits, 4- Chaffinch, 1- Greenfinch (+) 1- Robin, 1- Blackbird, 2- Jay, 3- Bullfinch, 4- Great Tit, 3- Blue Tit, 1- Coal Tit.
Two highlights today, just by feeding the birds. Firstly could not believe the Long-tailed Tits today..they were landing on the fat ball holder while I was lifting the top, and dropping the fat balls in. First ever time I have come face to face with Long-tailed Tits. They look even cuter close up! Secondly saw my first Greenfinch local this year, I had seen Greenfinch on a trip to Norfolk. This bird was feeding on the seed, by the Wardens office. Takes my total for Highgate Common up to 46 for the year!
