Bramblings surprise

1/4/16 I heard & saw my first Chiffchaff of the year on my morning walk on the 1066 Path – Sprays Bridge towards the A21. I also saw a pair of Reed Bunting. In the late afternoon I did another walk & got a fabulous view of a pair of Bullfinch in the wood beyond the pond on the 1066 Path – Sprays Bridge towards Brede.

2/4/16 We had four Siskins on our feeder. We have not seen Siskins at all this winter so this sighting was a very pleasant surprise. More was to come. A pair of Bramblings appeared. They did not use the feeder but fed on the ground. In our time in Westfield we have never seen Bramblings so this was an even greater surprise. They are such attractive birds.


UPDATE – photo taken by Jon Lloyd today 3/4/16, with zoomed in version below.
