Salcey Birds

I took a wander around Salcey Forest early today, mainly on the lookout for Lesser-spotted Wodpeckers.
 I didn't have any luck there but found both Great-spots and Green. Birds of Prey were seen in the form of Kestrel and Sparrowhawk and Corvids in the shape of Carrion Crows, Jackdaws and several noisy Jays.
 Considering I was in the middle of a forest it was surprising how many Bullfinches were around with around a dozen seen along the rides.

Marsh Tit
 Small birds were the main attraction though. As usual I had taken some seed with me and as soon as I scattered it on a fallen log, the birds were there, Nuthatches, Robins, Dunnocks, Great, Blue, Coal and Marsh Tits all making their raids on the makeshift bird table

  1. That's proper organised, Rob, having bird food with you! I'm sure the birds appreciated it, too.
