Redpoll at Yarner

After a nice afternoon at Stover Country Park, a late afternoon visit to close by Yarner Wood, was rewarded with 3 visiting Redpoll to the feeders at the Woodland Hide. They were not at all flighty unlike all of the tits, finches and Siskins possibly due to the threat of Sparrowhwak attacks, witnessed before at the hide. This one sat and fed for at least 10 minutes at the nyger seed feeder before being replaced by two more. For myself and my son this was a first and what a treat to see this rather smart looking little finch with it's bright metallic red cap.
