We wanted to post these pictures because we were so excited at how successful the mixes were at feeding the birds in the bad weather when they were most in need. We are amateur photographers so you will have to bear with the quality .. it is definitely not Springwatch standard but we have recorded the moment. It was minus 2 degrees and just check out the number of birds - do bear with it for the first ten to fifteen seconds, we think they were finches, flying over the bird seed plots.
When we were standing very still they all came down to feed, but would then fly off in a cloud again as you can see in the video.
