Plenty of other bird species have passed through the garden during November, a dozen or so Blackbirds in a group were foraging for worms and berries which stayed for half an hour and then moved on.
Woodpigeon and Collared Dove numbers increased during the first week and by the third week started to decline.
The Starling flock, seen on most days in the area has grown to about one hundred and fifty birds and the ever present House Sparrows now number twenty five or so. They visit the garden daily and favour a Rowan tree growing next to a dense shrub for shelter.
The bird feeders have been busy these last few days as the weather has turned colder, with Robin, Blue and Great Tit, with Dunnock foraging underneath, Starling, House Sparrow, Woodpigeon, Collared Dove and Jay, which has found a way to get peanuts out of the feeder.
