I had the pleasure of delivering bird seed to some of our Tree Sparrow Project volunteers today. This necessitated calling in at Meadow Farmhouse, the home of good friend Alan. There were good numbers of both Tree and House Sparrow whilst on his lawn where he regularly feeds the birds I enjoyed the spectacle of literally over one hundred Chaffinch along with good numbers of Linnet, Bullfinch, Reed Bunting, Yellowhammer, Goldfinch, Tits, and Grt. Sp. Woodpecker. Earlier I had checked on some Ewe Lambs that a friend is 'lodging' at another friends place, in fact in their orchard and saw that the Fieldfare are at last getting seriously greedy for the fallen apples.
