The orchard is still full of birds even with the hard winter weather. The most abundant of which are the fieldfare and redwings. They have an excited chatter / chuckle that fills the orchard as they fly in flocks through the rows of trees looking for apples that were left (and there are a good number this year - just as well considering the weather!). We have also spotted lots of blue tits, great tits, long tail tits, song thrush, pheasants, blackbirds, great spotted woodpeckers, as well as buzzards and sparrow hawks keeping the little birds alert!
We had a dormouse hunt last week, but didn't spot any signs in our hedges yet, but a nest was found in a near neighbours hedge, so they're close by!
