Another cold one

Overcast with a few light snow showers, -1°, light to breezy WNW.

Another busy day in the garden with the number of Fieldfare rising to around 20. They are still very possessive of their claimed apples and are defending them against all-comers even of their own species. The only bird that stood up to them was a Mistle Thrush that has been visiting on and off throughout the day.

A few Redwing skulking under the hedge at the back and side of the garden and a single Song Thrush on and off and up to 22 Blackbird present and a Pied Wagtail paying a few visits through the day. All the other regulars have been present today.

A three-legged Muntjac appeared in the garden today and stayed and fed for a short time. According to a friend it has been around for a couple of years and has been seen nearby.
