** New Garden Bird, Albeit Short And Sweet.**

This afternoon I spent some time watching the garden birds, at first I was seeing the usual species. I took a break, and when I went back for a second look later in the afternoon a small bird caught my eye on top of the peanut feeder. It landed on one of the feeding ports when a Starling flew in and scared it off into a bush before it daparted, but at least it stayed long enough for me to identify it, it turned out to be a  Coal Tit.
I was so pleased to be able to add a new species to my garden life list. That bought my garden life list to 60 species, and my garden year list to 40.

  1. Well done Ken, always nice to get something new in the garden. We do get Coal Tits in our garden but I haven't seen them so regularly this year.
