After filling up the feeders this lunch time I did some birding now and again from the kitchen window, I had as usual the regular visitors, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Long Tailed Tit, Robin, Dunnock, Blackcap(m), H/Sparrow, Starling, Blackbird, Collared Dove, W/ Pigeon, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Reed Bunting(1m,1f)
I then had a small mixed flock of 9 Redwing and Fieldfare fly in and rest up on the tree's at the bottom of the garden as per the other day., Then at 15:10 the female Brambling paid me a visit, I haven't seen it for about a week now, I thought it had moved on but it is still around. I did get a shot of it through the window but as it had been raining lightly all day it hasn't come out very well.
I stayed was watching the birds feeding when they all disappeared, some flew away, some dived into the bushes, I then found out why, a male sparrowhawk had arrived and sat on the seat at the bottom of the garden next to the hanging seed feeder. It made no attempt to catched anything when it arrived or whan it left. Again I took a few pictures of it but not brilliant, but one for the years garden record.
