Birds in Kineton in the snow

Seen in Kineton in the snow today – 23 bird species.

Blackbird, Blackcap, Blue Tit, Carrion Crow, Chaffinch, Coal Tit, Dunnock, Fieldfare, Goldfinch, Great Tit, Greenfinch, House Sparrow, Jackdaw, Long-tailed Tit, Redpoll, Redwing, Reed Bunting, Robin, Song Thrush, Starling, Treecreeper, Woodpigeon, Yellowhammer

Two good places – Redwings, Blackbirds and Song Thrushes hunting for minibeasts in the leaf-litter under the cherry trees by the road between Kineton and Little Kineton; and the scrubby patch over the stile next to Kineton Sports and Social Club, which has teasels and thistles – a lovely mix of Goldfinches, Yellowhammers, Reed Buntings (rather like sparrows with black-topped heads) and a Redpoll on the stinging nettle seeds.  It might not look much to people, but the birds love it!
