Another bird which seems to be lying low at present is the Song Thrush, but we have the usual resident collection of Robins, Dunnocks, Wrens, Collared Doves, Blue Tits, Great Tits, and Goldfinches.
Some of our other winter visitors, such as the Siskins, still haven't arrived. Worryingly, because we found one during the summer suffering from trichomonosis, we've seen no Greenfinches for several weeks. Meanwhile, the seed feeding areas and the peanut dispensers continue to be dominated by Chaffinches and House Sparrows, the latter including Blondie.
