Redwings seen in several Silsden gardens today. A very unusual visitor near houses.
They usually feed on farmland, getting insects from the ground, but hunger is driving them into town. The RSPB says they're at risk of perishing in this severe winter and are appealing for us to put out apples and berries.

About ten days ago we had about six or seven red wings eating the red berries on our cherry tree.Then more came each day until there were between fifty and one hundred,they swarmed like starlings do,all coming and going together.Sadley all the berrys are gone and so have the redwings.

I've had a greater spotted woodpecker in my garden for the last few weeks which I've not seen until this winter.

Heard the tawny owl as well, the foggy weather must have them thinking its dusk

I must say that it makes a nice change on here to read about wildlife rather than dog poo, roadworks, traffic congestion, fraudsters etc.....
