Tadpole & Chimney.

Another delivery was required today to keep Tree Sparrow Project volunteer Alan Larkman in millet as he was down to his last bag and I arrived at Alan's with 6x25 kg. bags and watched in wonder as the mixed flock of  hundreds of Finches fed on his front lawn and his nearby pony paddock made up of , and this is a rough estimate , two hundred and fifty Chaffinch,two hundred and fifty Linnets, one hundred Reed Bunting fourteen Bullfinch , and twenty Tree Sparrow the main numbers of Tree Sparrows were feeding on the feeders round the back garden, also a party of Long T Tits were active as only they can be active.
We then drove to Chimney to fill up the near depleted feeders and saw many Tree Sparrow, Reed Bunting and Yellowhammer. A flock of mainly Fieldfare I guess some two hundred in number along with one hundred Redwing and one hundred and fifty Starling were searching the grass fields for sustenance and as we walked across the field with the Dexter Cattle in it we were taken by the numbers of Meadow Pipits , probably around fifty, that were scratching what seemed a meagre living from the quite bare meadowland.
The Oxon Feather.
Bullfinch.
