It was also pleasing to see in excess of one hundred visitors to the reserve, which was no doubt caused by the regular reports of Coues's Arctic Redpoll visiting Sculthorpe's feeders since around the 18th February.
A small crowd remained vigilant throughout the afternoon, with good views of the Arctic Redpoll, along with Mealy and Lesser Redpoll, on the nyjer seed feeders near the portakabins at the entrance to the reserve.
