    Quite a moment yesterday, watching the Blue and Great Tits, Goldfinches on the feeder a Weasel scurried around the garden, we live in suburban south Birmingham, Pauline saw a mouse a few days ago so I guess that is what the Weasel was hunting. We also get Sparrowhawks in the area.

    Yesterday spotted a lovely pair of Greenfinches on the seed feeder. Too far away for pics, unfortunately.

    I have hardly seen any Greenfinches since they were decimated by a virus a few years ago.

    On an entirely different note, the butterfly pupa we have been looking after has hatched into a Large White today. We put a sugar water feeder with it and it will be released tomorrow.

    We parked in our friends garden in the north of Scotland and had red squirrels feeding 6 feet away together with Siskins and lots of Goldfinch. No better way to have breakfast in bed as we watched them.
