RSPB garden birdwatch at Hemblington Church.

Our good friends Sue and Peter had asked us if we'd like to take part in their event at the local church: Linda & I are always up for something different, so readily agreed.

Lin had donated a couple of feeders which Sue has been keeping topped up for a fortnight: these proved very attractive to a flock of 8+ Long-tailed Tits, as well as Blue and Great Tits, Chaffinches and Robins. In total we counted sixteen species in just over an hour, best of which, probably were the two Buzzards that drifted over.

Hemblington is a lovely little church, with an astonishing mural of St Christopher, as well as a beautifully decorated medieval font.

Thank you both for your help at the Birdwatch today and for providing so much food in advance. It certainly attracted the birds in and much enjoyment was had by all who attended. The team hopes to organise other events in and around the church including a wildlife day on Saturday 14 May - more details on the website soon

As always: our pleasure, Sue!
