Redpolls

Hi George,

Glad you can see my photos as I wasn't able to upload them on butterfly site so was glad I could here. We had Redpolls for many weeks infact I have a photo of them sharing feeder with Goldfinches, Greenfinches, Siskins and Bramblings. We have been lucky this summer we even have a woodpecker and squirrel now.

Hi Again

I can't upload to butterfly site either,or actually can't be bothered as it involves resizing .

Had a single Redpoll feeding on nettle near the Torness feeders last winter,which just added insult.

BTW when I clicked location on your rock pipit it wasnt on the coast ?

Reason I was checking,it is not unusual to get Littoralis the Scandinavian sub sp. on EL coast.

Rock Pipit

I used the Dunbar postcode perhaps that wasn't accurate enough. I took the photo on the beach beside golf course
