The feeding flock at the Scrubby Woods was again located, with the LONG TAILED TITS were NUTHATCH, TREECREEPER, COAL TIT, GOLDCREST and SISKIN along with the regular BLUE and GREAT TITS, WREN, DUNNOCK, and ROBIN. A single HOUSE MARTIN was the only summer species seen, making it's way SW against the strong wind.
So although not a terribly exciting visit, some good birds were seen, considering the habitat here is just bog standard degraded Kent countryside :-)
There is one piece of habitat on my patch that bucks that trend though, - my garden :-) I spent 40 minutes watching the comings and goings at the feeders, and took some photo's of a few regulars that visit at this time of year........................
|The young Blue Tits of the year are now sporting there full adult plumage|
|Two Nuthatch visit, carrying off more Sunflower hearts than they could possibly eat!|
|3 Coal Tits are regulars, but they still avoid sitting in a nicely lit place to be photographed :-)|
