Finches Finches convention

The year is progressing, the weeks are passing very quickly and although we are still in winter, spring is getting closer. I have been busy taking photographs and not getting out much as I should. The cold does not agree with me. Never mind beyond the bird table, through the kitchen window, more like.

So, here is a selection of the birds that visit the bird table in Boro garden. Firstly, the blackcap who is still putting in an appearance most days.

I always assumed that I had only one blackcap visiting, but seeing these photos together makes me wonder if there are two. Of course it could just be different light levels.

Beechwood B and B and Lewes.

Stay at Beechwood B and B in East Sussex and visit Lewes.
Surely one of the prettiest towns in Sussex, with its mixture of medieval and 18th-century houses, Lewes is bursting at its timbered seams with history. Beer lovers will be delighted to know that Sussex’s premier ale, Harveys, is brewed in town, and there are plenty of cosy pubs in which to sample it. Lewes is also famous for its Bonfire Night, which sees a cast of thousands parading through the streets in fancy dress with burning crosses before the pièce de résistance: effigies are burned in the nearby fields.
Located on the undulating South Downs, in a vista of buttery hills and widescreen skies, Spring Barn Farm is manna from heaven for kids, and perfect for campers who like a good walk. Let’s start with the secluded campsite: it’s basic – little more than a field with a nearby loo block – but the views are fantastic. Look out over the downs, peer into the adjacent Children of the Corn maize field, and hear the myriad calls of animals from the adjoining farm. Kids love the farm park in the farm’s central building and the menagerie outside. If goats, rabbits, and chickens are passé, then show them the cheeky Shetland ponies and South American alpacas with their Thunderbird-puppet lips. The maze is great fun too; three acres of twisting turns in which to lose yourself.
