A short video of a few things I saw during the walk
Now I know that a lot of people do not mention Gardens in their blogs but Our Garden is a big thing in our lives as it is where we Birdwatch most days of our lives and just recently I have been attempting to tidy it up so am even seeing more so here are a couple of short videos of 2 recent days of things we saw within a few minutes plus a couple of pics.
I popped down to Howdon for a couple of hours on Thursday morning, not expecting to see much as it was a couple of hours after high tide and a bit of a wind seemed to be picking up. Quite a lot of small birds around including a few Greenfinch which seem to be becoming quite scarce although I have been getting a male and a couple of females in the garden recently. About a dozen Grey Herons seemed to be glue to the trees as none of them moved whilst I was there. Curlews, Redshanks, Teal, Shelduck, a couple of Gadwall, a pair of Mute Swans and lots of Jackdaws and Magpies were the main birds on display.
