Redpolls in York

My friend Ian Newton invited me over to a small woodland near York where he was helping run a feeding station to attract redpolls as part of a study being conducted by a local birder. The niger seed feeders were attracting stacks of coal tits, blue tits and marsh tits, a species we don’t get in my neck of the woods, but they were indeed attracting the target species of redpoll. Today, not only were lesser redpolls arriving at the feeders, but the much bigger mealy redpoll was coming to feed too. Here are a few redpoll shots and I’m sure I’ll be posting the marsh tit shots soon :¬)
