Riddlesden  Garden.

By always  keeping  my feeders  topped up  I am rewarded, especially at this time of year when food is scarce, by regular visits from a good number of species. This morning I counted :- 

6 Bullfinch (3male , 3female)
4 Brambling
3 Siskin
6 Lesser  Redpoll
2 Greenfinch 
2 House Sparrow (unusual in my garden)
 As well as the usual suspects, Goldfinch, Chaffinch,Robin, Dunnock, Blackbird, Wren.

There has also been a Pheasant overwintering feeding on seed falling from the feeders.

  A handsome male Brambling seen this morning in my garden.
