Things picking up in the garden and after seeing no more sickly/dead finches have put my sunflower hearts feeder back up and was delighted to see the goldfinches start to feed.Plenty of house and treesparrows and have seen a couple of juvenile robins.Have been delighted to see the Willow Warbler return to my garden several times and has started feeding rather than just come for a bathe.

Well warren someone else has said that but I have seen the yellowwagtail in my garden and this was smaller,slimmer and had a shorter tail which didnt flick.Of course I am new to this bird lark so could be wrong

What lovely photos of the Willow Warbler Sheila, I have never seen one so close and didn't realise how yellow they are.

Sorry Sheila, I meant to mention how pleased I was to see things are improving in your garden regarding Tricho. Also an apology for forgetting to answer a question you asked me about the Tricho in my garden and whether I took the feeders down. I was going to remove them but after some visits from the Sparrowhawk, which I think was taking any sickly birds, I thankfully haven't seen any more signs of the disease. If I see any more I will have to think again.
