Woodpigs and Thrushes



A bright clear day with very little sky activity other than an early morning move >S of Woodpigeons and Fieldfare which had dried up by 0900hrs. The groups were small consisting of 10 to 20 birds making it look like autumn vis mig is nearing a close for another year.
A low count of Common and Black Headed gulls were in the park at midday along with a blogging Meadow Pipit which was an unusual sight.
A Grey Squirrel is visiting the garden feeders daily but doesnt seem to bother the Sparrows that are happy to feed alongside it. A neighbour by the garage looked out at his bird feeders and was shocked to see a massive Brown Rat which had climbed the trellis work on his hut to get to the fatballs.

That's it for my feeders if I get one of those in the garden - certainly less welcome than Grey Squirrels (and they need shooting!) 4 in the garden yesterday.

At least up here there are no mice, the rats kill them all.
