Now that's different!  The Pied ones come on our feeder, but never seen a green one there.   :)

I saw a goldcrest this morning.  The little birds are coming back close to the houses from the woods, a sign that the colder weather is on the way.   :(

The starlings are hammering the seed heads on the Cabbage Palm tree today, plenty on the ground for them too after the storms.

walking down the lane and frightened a small bird of prey which was chasing a small bird.
came back up and the same bird still chasing smaller birds.
probably a sparrow hawk? not really sure angular wings but small.

This morning the two wires connecting the telegraph poles that go down the field were absolutely covered in starlings! Never seen so many at one time.

the last time I did a bit of bird watching last summer I got a clip round the ear from my O/H o you mean the feathered variety sorry I was getting carried away with my thoughts of summer  bird watching

so back to bird watching because the back of our house backs onto a cultivated field we see quite a few birds feeding quite close to our back window we recently seen eight pheasant's all hen birds quite content with scratching and eating something in the field and we get a cock bird visiting in the morning for his breakfast

sometimes get crows and magpies calling to feed and quite a variety of small birds in the summer they usually perch on the barbed wire just outside the kitchen window couldn't wish for a better picture  ;)
