Icy January start draws in the birds

A cold start to the year meant plenty of garden visitors especially as we put out corn for our local Yellowhammers and finch flock. Highest count for the Yellowhammers so far has been 15 birds. This seems to be approximately the same number as the last 6-7 years. Unusual birds ground feeding daily are Pheasants and a flock of 5 Red-legged Partridges, the latter has now been with us for over a month.
