What I find with our garden is that many bird species aren’t daily visitors, instead they come and go over a period of time.
Towards the end of last year, we had greenfinches on a regular basis.
Then they stopped but I saw my first of the year the other day, a female on the feeding station.
Since then, there have been a number of visits, with two birds the most at one time.
That was tick number 32 for the garden so far this year.
