Decided on another trip to sandy as it was still grey and cold on my day off on thursday so started at the hide where I had nice views of at least 2 Great Spotted Woodpeckers feeder where I had one 1 Male and one 1 Female feeding nearby. On the main Feeder had upto 3 Lesser Redpolls, Nuthatch which unusually was ground feeding and a selection of themore usual garden birds. Around the water edge were quite a few Blackbird one quite showy gathering nesting material. Later on had a flythrough Green Woodpecker, a Nice Stock Dove and Pheasnts and Red-Legged Partridges. Then headed back to the house feeder where had a nice showing with upto 3 Brambling, least 10 Lesser Redpolls and 1 Mealy Redpoll which is the latest that i seen this species.
