Christmas Mice & Hungry Birds

With a bit of a colder patch lately and the natural food sources running low, there has been a lot of action on my rid feeding stations. I am still waiting for two of my favourite winter visitors to make an appearance; the black cap and the bullfinches. I have heard the bullfinches around, but not seen them at the feeders yet. The Hub feeders are mainly attracting the finches: chaffinch, goldfinch and greenfinch. The male and female great spotted woodpeckers make daily appearances along with dunnocks, all the tit species and jackdaws, collared doves and wood pigeons. With this video, I experimented with the annotation option, that identifies some of the species as they appear (this feature does not work on a phone).
