A scarce garden visitor

Much to my delight this male Reed Bunting has been visiting my garden for 3 consecutive days


It is usualy common in reedbeds and open areas such as moorland and cultivation. However during harsh winters they are known to feed from garden bird tables, so it was as much a suprise to find this fella on a glorious sunny spring day..... even better to see it is still visiting after 3 days
Happy Days indeed

A lovely bird I often see at Haydn's Pool Marbury Dave but never in my garden. A great bird to see.
