I did however get to take some garden photo's while the offending tap was being seen to! Only the usual garden characters, but it was nice to sit down and watch them all at the feeders. Still very few finch's are coming in, just one GOLDFINCH, 4 CHAFFINCH and no Greenfinch at all, unheard of at my feeders!
Whilst taking the photo's from my garden photography studio - (shed!), I heard LESSER REDPOLL and SISKIN go over, and a MISTLE THRUSH was heard singing over at the Small Holding, where as dusk fell two LITTLE OWLS were heard duetting :-)
Here's the photo's, despite the sunshine the light was only just getting over the garden wall, so they are mostly a bit dark.
