Not the best day to visit Chimney Meadows, a nature reserve in Oxfordshire.
Once parked up it was quite a long trek through very flooded fields to the two bird hides. On the way we spotted a kestrel and the hedgerows were full of birds such as long tail tits, wrens, redwings, blue and great tits.
The birds seemed to have a great system of sharing the feeder.
The black cap would fly directly in from the back of the hedge and feed from the bottom hole. The blue and great tits would sit on nearby branches and take it in turns, while the robins and chaffinches would hop around underneath.
This would all stop for a few minutes when the squirrel took it's turn. The birds would sit and wait while the squirrel ate and when it left the birds would start feeding again.
It was really funny to see the squirrel hanging upside down using just it's hind paws.
