Just for fun I keep a garden list, it stands at a reasonable 80- yes its not a high score for someone who has lived in the same dwelling for nearly 21 years but as I said its just for fun. Two ticks for this year in the garden in as many weeks with a superb Little Owl on 16th October calling and seen on a roof from the back garden and a Brambling which was more than expected on 1st November which was a fly over. In or over they all count for the garden list. As I look at my list for the garden Waxwing, Crossbill, Green Sandpiper, Lesser Whitethroat are some of the birds seen, I do wonder what's next?
Kestrel above is also on my garden list.
