Do you remember my plug for the beauty of a local field full of Ragwort (Seedheads: Ragwort, 11 September)? Well, as I expected that field is now alive with seed-eating birds, enjoying the bounty provided by the Ragwort. Numbers of Goldfinches and Linnets are increasing daily as the news goes out in the bird world that there is food aplenty. And, though it’s not such good news for the seed-eaters, the local Peregrines and Sparrowhawks are also benefitting from the increase in the small bird population.
