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.
