We always feed our birds and we have a nice garden selection, though we get less finches than we think we ought to. A neighbour has a big field with quite a large pond in it so it's not unusual to see big flocks of Greylags and Canada Geese flying over our house. I've also got Cormorant on my garden list thanks to the neighbours pond. It's not often I get to add new birds to this list.
When the snow came we stepped up the feeding and worked hard to keep the bird bath from freezing so our feathered visitors had plenty of food and water. The extra food plus the bad weather has meant my garden list has grown by three in the space of a week.
