There were definitely fewer birds today, as far as I've got.
First in was a squirrel - this wasn't the first in but it was the first to show its face, very fuzzy tho:
Plenty Cresties today, I wasn't going to snap any but this one arrived at a very bright moment:
I expect these rectangles have been here forever and I just haven't registered them - how/when/why? Did someone put mats down before the snow? Are there rectangles of under-floor heating? ;) Unfortunately my feeder cam history is deleted and saved snaps are all crops.

Yesterday. What a dapper fellow, but has he been overshadowed by yet another experimental frame? ;)
This morning, no Crestie, only squirrels for half an hour!
Poor little Coal Tit kept having to give up waiting:
At one stage the squirrel had to tend its arm:
Then it was this GSW who kept the little birds away:
That's a pre-made frame, and if you look at the corners you can see it makes no better job of it than I do with my dashed lines ;)
EDIT: Omitted the pot-bellied Crestie:
All the Tits were here today, plus Chaffinch, but no newbies. Last at the feeder were 4 Coalies!

Good answer, GARDENBIRDER :)
I just think that all its energy went into its belly ;)
This morning's entry order was squirrel, Crestie, Coat Tit.
We still have visitors/photographers:
The 3 main Tits:
Plenty birdies most of the day:
A Coal Tit was last at the feeder but this bird (pigeon?) was last on-screen - it had wandered out of the trees and meandered down out of the bottom:
No Chaffinch seen all day.
(Please remember that I skim thru 6-hour clips at a rate of knots, so nothing I report is gospel.)
