Our most exciting visitors this week have been like this
This is not a picture we have taken but it shows a redpoll. In the last few days we have had two pairs on the feeders. They seem fiesty little birds, facing down other species which intrude on their little spot.
We have eventually put in position our motley collection of nest boxes – probably too late for some species this year.
We are getting quiet excited about guinea fowl
A neighbour has some and says they act as good alarms for foxes and other intruders. They seem low maintenance and independent – suits us.
Meanwhile, the sun is shining on the catkins
