Back­yard bird­ing

Bird Watching (UK) - - #my200birdyear -

This is one time of year when that ex­tra bit of food put out for gar­den birds can pro­vide ex­tra re­ward with more un­usual vis­i­tors. Fruit may draw in win­ter thrushes (Field­fares and Red­wings) or even, per­haps, a chance of a Waxwing (if we have the ‘promised’ in­va­sion!). Some lucky gar­den bird­watch­ers have at­tracted Lesser Spot­ted Wood­pecker, Mealy (Com­mon) Red­poll and even Hawfinch, dur­ing the win­ter.
