Weather is warming up but still getting some unusual visitors

Last couple of days has seen an improvement in the temperature but there are still a few visitors to the garden that are normally only here in the really cold times.  The lone female Brambling is still about, as are a few Siskins.  Still got the usual birds like Long-tailed Tits, Bullfinches, Chaffinches, Greenfinches and Goldfinches as well as the Goldcrest that’s been hanging about for a couple of months.  Here’s a small collection of shots from the last 2 days.

I have also spent a lot of time changing this website.  I’ve added British Birds to the Menu and divided the sub menus into smaller numbers of species.  I’ll continue changing these into individual species as time and number of photographs permit.

I have added a 2nd Search Box for searching photographs along with the original Search Box for searching Posts.  Most photographs have tags, eg. bird name, which can be searched for using the Search Photos Box.
