When it first appeared I thought it may have been 'Hoppy', the Grey Wagtail that had overwintered around the pond for four years running. I should have realised that this couldn't have been the same bird as I noticed very subtle differences in the plumage and 'Hoppy' would have been by now a very old bird.
Herring Gulls are still making a lot of noise around the house and surrounding area. The flock size can vary from a few to 35+ and are made of adults and juveniles, all in their winter plumage.
Good numbers of Starling are also seen on a daily basis around the garden, with flock sizes of up to 60 plus.
