Rambling Brambling

It might technically be spring but it doesn't feel like it today! Although the official butterfly monitoring season started on Friday temperatures are still too low for us to start our surveys (a minimum of 13 degrees Celsius and at least 60% sun is needed!). There are some benefits to this cold weather though, including the charming Brambling spotted on the feeder by the office. Typically a winter visitor to the UK, this bird can easily be confused with a Chaffinch from a distance, so check any birds you see carefully when you walk around the reserve. Lizy
