Garden

Just had 5 red kites over the garden. Daily bird but more often as a single or pair. Haven’t seen 5 together in this location for some time. Accompanied by a buzzard and a sparrowhawk passed through for good measure. 15 minute raptor-fest.

Also had a pheasant in the garden for the first time in a couple of years (male).

Feeders are getting busier again – blue, great, coal tits. Long tailed tit party feeding in willows but not using feeders. Several nuthatch and a great spotted woodpecker.

House sparrows and chaffinches ground feeding with robins, blackbirds and dunnocks.

Both grey wagtail and pied wagtail present.

More jays appearing now. Pair raven over daily, carrion crows, jackdaws, magpies.

Woodpigeons also building in numbers and collared dove pair resident.

Mistle thrushes reappearing, particularly late afternoon/early evening, song thrush.
