If you go to Winwick on a regular basis you must have met this man. He knows you all. He is extremely knowledgable about the local railway scene and the most friendly guy you could wish to meet. His car boot is an 'Alladin's Cave' of railway information, photographs and wild bird food. The latter includes fat balls and peanut feeders which he hangs on trees, and mealworms which he places on fence posts. Recognise him?
His name is Ray Whitfield but everyone knows him as Ray - hardly anyone knows his surname. He can be seen feeding his feathered friends almost every day.
Ray is pictured hanging a fat ball to a hawthorn tree today, February 5th, but I have also added a pic of two of his very grateful friends, a robin and a blue tit.
