Freda's Grave

Yesterday was all about lazy birding, we decided to head down to Cannock Chase to a spot called Freda's Grave as it has a great little feeding area plus a patch of heath that it relatively push chair friendly.
As it was rather windy we thought the heath birds would be keeping their heads down so we just stayed in the car and watched the comings and goings around the feeding area.
The seed brought in Bullfinch, Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Willow, Great, Blue Coal and Longtailed Tit, Blackbird, Robin, Magpie, Nuthatch and Dunnock.
There was a flock of mixed Siskin and Redpoll's that kept popping down for a drink in the puddles along the track but the odd bird did come for a drink around the feeders allowing for a few shots.
Lesley spotted a Tree Creeper on one of the Hawthorn trees just along the track which added to the total.
