First visit of this Autumn to the Estate woodlands at Grafton Underwood

Bad light and showers sum up the conditions, a plus side however is that wonderful autumnal smell that you get from the shed leaves beginning to gather on the woodland floor, a musty and evocative scent.

I feed up a corner of the woods in Autumn and Winter with a mix of seed and peanuts.

Yesterday I put down the first feed of the year and used the old trick of putting a mossy log down on top of the seed for the birds to land on before dropping down to feed .... it always works.

                                                    Many Marsh Tits
A confident and very territorial Robin
And a host of other birds including small parties of Long Tailed Tits, Chaffinch, Coal Tits, Blue Tits and Great Tits. 

A very  rewarding and enjoyable hour, with Red Kites overhead.

  1. Great idea with the log may have to steal that idea for my garden birds
