I have a youngish oak tree outside my window, and due to the positioning of my mobile home on a slope, I'm seeing it half way up, rather than from ground-height. Effectively, my bird feeders are positioned high in its branches, and that's the primary reason why they have attracted such a variety of visitors in a short space of time, from bullfinches to chiffchaffs. And, of course, the British answer to the chickadee, which is gradually becoming more cooperative
...most of the time
I've seen more marsh tits in the last week than I have in the rest of my life - in fact there's another one outside the window as I type this They are remarkably talkative little birds, and cannot seem to fly anywhere without making small, thin calls.
Other guests are not going unnoticed
Squirrels are making their presence known, and they're making it a family trip. This young one looked a bit big for nursing, but the mother tolerated it - briefly. Then she returned to the oak tree, her youngster following her like a dog on a leash.
Another youngster has proven unexpectedly bold. The bare patches on this magpie's head are probably due to moulting.
It will be interesting to see how the guest list changes as winter develops. I'm not far from Dungeness National Nature Reserve, which can attract some real rarities.
