Winter Birds in Paignton

Like most of you, restricted to garden birding for obvious reasons. However, proved extremely fruitful, producing 3 firsts for the garden:

  • Several Redwings & a Fieldfare - first time recorded in the garden
  • A Goldcrest - first time recorded on a feeder

Was also visited by an old friend the Blackcap.

Handy Hint No1: Of all the times to run out of seed, it had to be now! Improvised by putting peanuts in the food processor and filling the feeders with that.

                      Redwing                                          Fieldfare                       Blackcap (definitely overwintering)
