Treecreeper visits peanuts

January 25th 2011

It is always good to help the birds in your garden. Since 1997 many folk in Assynt have been recording the birds that visit their garden each month. Over that time we have acculmulated a vast amount of information on the birds you have seen. Some birds have declined such as Spotted Flycatchers while others have increased such as Goldfinches and Great-spotted Woodpeckers.

Here are some recent garden visitors to Mark and Jan Snowden’s Garden in Lochinver.
