The presence of 6 (yes, six) jackdaws scared off many of the small birds this morning. The jackdaws organised themselves with four keeping guard, one on the feeder and one on the ground underneath. The watchmen were neatly stationed on separate branches surrounding the action. Meanwhile a blackbird amused itself by exploring a squirrel’s nut store.

It was good to see three fieldfares on the trees after the big birds had left. These are a first for the lane.

Snowdrops still not out.
