Westfield Pill

Another great location for viewing birds at close quarters is the bridge at the top of Westfield Pill. I was there shortly after Christmas when I suddenly realised that the branches of the trees around me were filling up with birds! I was hardly camouflaged in a bright red coat!!

I didn't have a camera with me but returned a few days ago and nothing out of the ordinary happened. I spent some time photographing the birds coming to the feeder including the smart nuthatch in the picture. It was only when a met a woman in a red coat who explained that she fed the birds on a regular basis did the penny drop!
