They seem to be much more common this year, as a number of people have told me about them feeding on their feeders. I noticed them sitting among some Dogwood across the road from my front garden, but they are very sensitive and flew as soon as I made a move for a closer look. So when they turned up in our garden a couple of days ago I was thrilled! They come and go from the same direction - so it looks like they have set up home in the quarry.
This first picture was taken through my kitchen window on Saturday - so it just shows it is good to have your camera ready! The next one was taken this evening when the light was a bit of a struggle, hence the poor quality (well that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it!).
