Ahead once again, Ken!
I've had a touch of man flu the past few days, the extra garden watching has not been completely birdless though. I was watching some yellowhammers at the end of the garden, a dozen in a leafless ash tree when some more similar sized birds flew in. It was so gloomy I couldn't be sure but they looked like Linnets
. I had to get the scope to confirm it, just in time as a male sparrowhawk put them to flight, there must have been around 40. Then, on Sunday my good lady called from the kitchen to say there were some thushes eating berries. When I checked I found a pair of Mistle Thrush.
That takes me to 60
for the year, more than I expected at the begining and still one or two more possible.
Hope you're feeling better now, I am, I given it to the other half.
