Cold snap visitors

It's a shame that most of the food I put out gets devoured by fat squirrels and pigeons. 

I got this Nyger seed feeder for Christmas. The Goldfinches queue up to get on to it. 
I like things that are fit for purpose.

Very occasionally I'm in the right place at the right time and holding a camera. 
This is the first Redwing I've seen in the garden.

Hedgehog remains

In the winter bracken dies back to ground level. It's a good place to hunt for remains which 
have been hidden all year. I just found what's left of a hedgehog. 
I'm amazed at how small his bones are.
