After work I took advantage of the slightly less dull conditions and set up in my garden shed to take some more photo's of the Tits visiting the 'blog log'. This lasted just 45 minutes before it ''gloomed'' over again :-(
I decided there was still time enough for a quick foray around the Tree Nursery and Greenhouse Grounds before dusk, the former was much livelier than yesterday, with 2 MEADOW PIPITS, 2 GREEN WOODPECKERS, 4 REDWING, at least 4 SONGTHRUSH and a sprinkling of BLACKBIRDS, also one of the KESTREL pair was up hunting again :-)
By the time I got to the Greenhouse Grounds it was already getting dark, but I did see a pair of BULLFINCH and a GOLDCREST in the bramble beneath the Alder Trees, where 4 SISKIN and 6 GOLDFINCH were feeding, not much else but the usual profusion of WRENS, ROBINS and DUNNOCKS were noted.
A scan across Migrant Alley revealed 13 BLACK HEADED GULLS on the sheep pasture, along with the ROOKS and WOODPIGEONS, but the hoped for Common Gull wasn't to be found.
Still pretty lean times out there really!
Here's the results from the garden bird session, not much of a change, but as I said it 'gloomed' over pretty quickly! One of these days I'm going to spend a long photo session and fill my blog folder up!! ( when the sun comes back that is!)
