A nice selection of visitors B3. I haven't seen many goldfinches yet this year which is surprising since we've had a constant frost for almost 1 week now here in Edinburgh. There must still be plenty of food elsewhere for them.
Re weather predictions - It's my theory that they predict a bad winter just to say 'we told you so' afterwards.
A woodpecker made a nesting hole in my old apple tree but it was never used because she was,disturbed when we had our fence done. The blue tits investigate it sometimes but. I don't think they've used it either.
