Ashridge Farm

Dec 2015

So this is were we start. December 29th 1015 We have not seen any winter yet. Temp in the mid teens and only a couple of light ground frosts back in November. Peter our son, has been ringing birds this morning. Several Goldfinch plus Greenfinch, Dunnock, Marsh tit, Nuthatch and the star bird a male Siskin. The most interesting thing I see at the moment is 2 large Bumble bees feeding. They are on the Mahonia. I think they are feeding young as they are flying away and returning about 5 minutes later. If so will they survive any winter yet to come.
