** 2hr Garden Watch.**

Not having been out for quite a while I thought I would spend a couple of hours window birding, mainly to add something to my blog. Many of the usual garden species made a appearance, Starling, they always seem to finds the bird feeders etc no matter where I put them, although they are a pretty bird, The following species are what I counted at one visit to the garden:
Collared Dove(5),  House Sparrow(there is always about 10-15,mainly males),  Dunnock(2),  Robin(1),  Wren(1),  Great Tit(1m,1f),  Blue Tit(5),  long tailed Tit(2 at the end of the watch),  Blackbird(2m)  Chaffinch(2m,1f),  Goldfinch( 9 on the feeders at one count),  Greenfinch(2m, 3f).
A Sparrowhawk soared across the sky high above the garden, 2 Magpie's sat in a tree in the park, as did 1 C/Crow. Some Gulls passed through, heading north, most of them was Common Gulls the others was Herring Gulls.
I have left this bird to last, not that it is anything to get excited about because it normally turns up to feed most winters along with the male, it was a female REED BUNTING, this the earliest that I have had one come feed.
