They continue to come.... Lessers and the single Mealy. A garden record count of 42 arrived at the feeding station mid week although I am certain I missed even more high up in the trees. The milder weather is now slowing the feeding down after the initial early morning burst, with more natural food available only a handful are staying around and about for any length of time, of course as the day draws on the main flock come back for a top up before going to roost.
If I am really lucky they should stay around until very early April before flying back North.
