Garden Watch mostly

Saturday 13th February 2016

Been feeling a bit lethargic since the excursion. Had a couple of visits to the Tame valley but nothing to report except the 4 Oystercatchers at Dosthill and the odd Water rail. Completely failed to see the mythical Firecrest despite an extensive search and apparently missed a Red Kite which flew overhead, apparently also at Dosthill, apparently. My patch walk at Caldecote was equally quiet except for 140 Fieldfare with a few Redwings.
So as far as illustrations are concerned we'll have to make do with my female Blackcap which continues to visit my garden feeders when the now 9 Greenfinches have had their fill.

  1. Nice shots of the Blackcap - I assume that more and more of these are over-winerting these days.

    I run a blog link up called "Wild Bird Wednesday" where bloggers can add a link back to their own bird blogs - and join about 50 other bird bloggers from around the world. New blogs always welcome!
