Nowt to shout about to a lot of people, but a single Goldcrest working its way around the dead plantpots in the back garden made a welcome sight to us.
Our usual garden visitors , Coal Tit, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Robin, Wren and Blackbird have been a bit scarce over the last day or two.
We are at the end of a run of about 24 back gardens and often have a Sparrow Hawk sitting on the fence after a failed sortie, and I wonder if it has recently had some success.
Earlier today we were driving down the Derwent valley so thought we would stop at Thornley. Saw a couple of Red Kite, Wren, Coal Tit, Chaffinch, Nuthatch, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Half a dozen squirrel (grey) and a Sparrow Hawk having two failed sorties through the feeding area.
