New garden tick
Today I added Hobby to my garden birds list, which includes birds seen from the garden. As I mowed the lawn it shot down the gardens of the houses opposite. I could not see if it was chasing anything.

Not a bad one to see from your garden!


ps how is Redditch? My aunt lives there.

If you sit and watch or just keep your eyes open it's really quite amazing what goes by. I think that applies to everywhere.

Sure does pay off. How about 35/40 Waxwings?

That's what I just had flew over this morning, my first ever May Waxwings (they usually leave by mid/late April)

Never had Waxwing. I'm jealous. Had Peregrines, Goshawk to name a few. Even Pied Flycatcher! Not bad for a suburban garden.
