Didn't bother going out today with blanket fog everywhere
early doors so I loaded up the bird feeders and had a gardenwatch,
and I'm glad I did, it was quiet at first but then livened up later on,
Blackbirds were doing plenty of fighting and then a Great Tit showed
up followed by a flock of Goldfinch which visited the garden on & off
all day long, 2 Blue Tits then had a go at the peanut feeder and then
later on another one showed up.
In the back field a flock of 20+ Brambling flew over towards Boothtown
and Lee Mount and then as the sun broke through the clouds and fog
a flock of 10+ Redwing turned up in nearby trees, lots of Jackdaws
& Crows about also.
Back in the garden the Blackbirds were still fighting until 2 Collared
Dove's turned up and spooked them for a while but they didn't seem to
bother the 2 Chaffinch and Goldfinch that visited, 2 birds then turned up
that looked like warblers but on closer inspection I think they were
Dunnocks but a bit slender than the one's I'm used to seeing I even had
to ring DS to put me right as I was that unsure at first, unless the light
was playing tricks on me, a Wren and a Robin and 10+ Starlings also
turned up during the day but the highlight of the day was my garden
Woodmouse Mr Bo Jangles trying to lift up a slice of bread which was
funny to watch, I'm amazed he's survived with next door's 4 cats and
local Weasel and Foxes always hanging about but glad that he as.
