I carried out another full patch walk in the kinder conditions, but managed a poor tally of bird species, just 41 in all, the likes of Songthrush, Buzzard and Pheasant were missing, plus those summer species that can no longer be found here, only SWALLOW, WHITETHROAT, CHIFFCHAFF and BLACKCAP were on the daylist to represent those.
I did however add LONG TAILED TIT (52) to the months list as last, as well as LITTLE OWL (53), one was calling from the Small Holding area.
Some of the KESTREL family remain hunting over the area, plus 2 SPARROWHAWKS were again observed over the Wet Woods. The only flyover species seen today were HERRING GULLS, plus the local group of CANADA GEESE with the lone GREYLAG GOOSE.
Photo's today from my garden...........the Blackcaps that were feeding on the Elder berries yesterday morning.
