Suet all gone again and seeds difficult to reach.

What looked to me like a hole in the feeder yesterday looks like just weathering in the present light :)

It was colder today, and as joii said, the suet was all gone. Birds still came often though, to check it out and grab seeds..

I saw the Hawfinch a few times early in the day.

And birds reaching far inside for seeds.

There were lots of birds visiting and fluttering around.

Yes the time change was something I wondered about, but nothing has changed, unless the clock needed updating. Also, the kids are on Spring Break holidays from school I think. Haven't seen the usual rush to get through the gates before 8 am.

That last picture with the wings flapping had me smiling - looked like the bird had grabbed that person in red in its talons! LOL

Oh yes ... :flying: LOL

Wiki says they have eleven time zones and stopped observing daylight savings in 2011.

Very few birds came this morning - although they seemed successful when reaching for seeds. These screenshots were over a 6-hour period, when it gradually 'warmed up', although the temperature remained below freezing.

Thanks Van and others for all your posts....I am traveling and unable to post right now. I did just get a look at the cam though on the hotel computer. Below freezing again...do they ever warm up? :cold:

I'm no longer permitted to access this site as of today - its security certificate has expired. Hopefully the host, Brigadier, will correct this situation.
