Took the kids to Leighton Moss with me. I was hoping that they would get a chance to feed a tame Robin from the hand., but it wasn’t to be. With the thaw mostly complete (although the meres were still frozen over) and more people about the robins weren’t so numerous or so confident. We did get very close to Robin which sat in a path-side tree and serenaded us, and also took our birdfeed off the floor, but wouldn’t take it from the hand.
However, we did see a Heron, a Woodpecker on a feeder and a charm of Goldfinches feeding on an Alder.
Hmmm…the blog is in danger of becoming a birding log. Not to worry – I’m sure that normal service of leaves etc will resume soon.
