Great Spotted Woodpecker in Edinburgh Garden. Waxwings reports.

December 16, 2014 in sightings

It’s been a while since I’ve seen one of these beauties, actually not since 17th of January 2014, almost a year!  Great to have a 10 minute view today.  I’ve also heard reports of waxwings in the Edinburgh region, sadly none seen at my place yet, doubt I’ll get any, the blackbirds have pretty much stripped all the berries from the small bushes I currently have.

Bullfinches again.

December 13, 2014 in sightings

My hands with capral tunnel have been even worse and I’ve asked to get the 2nd lot of surgery for both hands, this means little updates and ccan’t even pick up camera or binoculars 🙁 – I have helped my wife set up her website: which she loves running.

Nothing out of the ordinary at the moment, but I was excited to see 3 bullfinches, 2 x male and 1 x female.
