A great day out here with the weather holding out, biggest problem is that it is turning a bit cooler now, time of year, winter time! Certainly the birds at the feeders have been scoffing the food today. I counted a Blackbird at the bird table this afternoon. Talk about being hungry, 153 pecks of seed before it decided that it had had enough! I saw one yesterday and it was just 50 pecks, but this one today tops it all... There was a flock of around 20 Blackbirds seen along the road at Sunderland this morning.
