Churchyard birding

             Checking for migrants in the village parish churchyard.
              LH side is well kept, RH side is the ancient graves
            Ferals roost on the clock tower


    The old part of the graveyard makes a good habitat.

Back to walking to work now that the schools are back so no early morning cricket field check due to heavy traffic through the village not giving me time to watch for movement and get to work on time.
Unfortunately most of the children in Queensbury don,t seem to be able to walk to school and have to be driven.
This morning was a check in the graveyard which can produce decent birds but not so today.
11 Common gulls and 8 Black Headed were on the new mown area of the newer half of the graveyard whilst 4 Robins, 3 Wrens and a flock of around 12 Blue , Great and Coal Tits were mobile around the well overgrown graves in the old  unmanaged section.
Several Feral pigeons were up on the clock tower where a Kestrel can usually be found perched as well as on the mill chimney.
No movement over the garage this morning in the clear blue skies.
