Today the Council and David Bamford installed a squirrel-proof bird-feeder. It is the large metal cage on the south side of the Square and cannot be breached by squirrels and pigeons. Tons of thanks to the Council for supporting it. Please don't touch it until next week as the underground concrete support needs to set. we are hoping to encourage smaller birds by providing safe seed so please tell us if you see any.

There seem to have been less small birds in our garden this winter, possibly due to the noise from construction throughout the late autumn at No. 5. However, yesterday I spotted a robin and blackbird. Today a greenfinch and great tit have been taking it in turns to eat the new bird cake made by OKE from the RSPB's make a speedy bird cake recipe.

Over the last couple of days there has been extreme weather in the square. On monday some places in london had a foot (12 inches/30 centimeters) of snow recorded.
This didn't stop us seeing the pair of blackbirds and a greenfinch around midday or early afternoon on Monday the 2nd.
