Since the turn of the year, up to 15 redpolls have been visiting a birdwatcher's garden in Speen village, feeding regularly on the feeder.
The flock includes one particularly well-marked MEALY REDPOLL as well as at least four others, less well marked, including a male and several first-winters. The palest individual is depicted above, courtesy of Mike Collard.
The birds are still present today (per SRN, MW) after being seen well on Sunday (MC, BAM, et al) and Monday (MC, DP, LGRE).
