Today after heavy rain and thunderstorms last night I am feeling a little out of sorts. I can’t for the life of me explain the correlation between thunder and a feeling of lassitude so perhaps it’s pure coincidence.
Last week whilst in Rosedale I was blessed by a large flock of Goldfinch. The feeders were also host to Great Tits, Nuthatch, Siskin, Coal Tits, Chaffinch, Mallard and just to keep them all on their toes a Sparrow Hawk blasted in from time to time. That Chaos had to be seen to be believed.
It’s amazing how many small birds have survived the awful cold we experienced prior to Christmas. I can only think that it was lucky the cold came early in the winter when there was still plenty of food still around.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
