Redpolls have been visiting my garden this winter for the first time ever 😀
This winter has been great for birdwatching for me. First we saw increased Goldfinch activity, then came a bunch of Siskins, and then a few Redpolls!
I recognised them right away because the RSPB calendar I have, has a photo of a Redpoll for February!
They have been feeding with the Goldfinch, Siskin, and a couple of Greenfinch.
The sunflower hearts are being such a big hit, and I don’t think I’ve ever had to fill up the feeders so much this time of year before.
I’m really happy they’ve been visiting. I just wish I could ask them why they are, why now?
What have you been seeing in your garden? Anything new?
