A tree I miss


One of the winter sights I miss here in Cambridgeshire is the flocks of Siskin and Redpoll that used to feed in stands of larch Larix at a reserve near my old home.

Siskin







At this time of year these birds flock together to feed performing acrobatics to get into the cones.

Sadly around here we don't have any larch stands and my garden isn't big enough to plant my own wood! Oh well I feel a birdwatching trip coming on!
