Although the regular birds are still around, consumption of seed from the feeders has been much reduced this month, hopefully a sign that the birds are managing to find plenty of food from more natural sources.

Nothing particularly unusual to report apart from one sighting of a Chiffchaff. As well as the usual Blue Tits, the Coal Tits have started to visit more frequently and towards the end of the month the Great Tit was also putting in regular appearances again.
