Friday - Just Another Day at the Office

Blue Tit
Chaffinch - & pesky twig
Bullfinch - & loads of pesky twigs!

After 2 days with either exceptional birds and behaviour, Friday was more like a bump down to earth. You can probably never have a really poor days birding at this location apart from during high summer, but nothing was really unexpected, and some of the standards weren't visible. However, the Kingfisher was a highlight for the morning group, plus good views of the birds photographed. The afternoon session had an excellent sighting of a wild Jay! In addition we did see Redpolls, Siskins, and loads of Bullfinches, but no Bittern, Jay or Lesser Spotted Woodpecker. Friday was actually the first time this year that my 7 layers were too much - it did get a little hot in the sunshine!
