It was one of those grey autumn, very still, mornings....but birds everywhere!
Before I had even got out of the front garden I noticed a female Blackcap in our birch tree along with a charm of 30+ Goldfinches
Hirundines over the Lagoon, Chiffchaffs in the ivy clumps; Blackbirds, Song Thrushes and Robins in the hawthorns; Reed Buntings,Greenfinches and Linnets around the Little Lagoon.
A couple of Stonechats and a few Meadow Pipits were on the wire fence leading to the hide; Rock Pipits on the harbour wall and flyover Pied Wagtails going east. Nothing spine tingling but a really good autumn morning for variety and sheer numbers!
