Wallington wildlife

After a visit to Kirkharle  today we thought Wallington might offer a bit shelter from today's sharp wind. We quickly made our way down to the walled garden and were not disappointed. First up was a cracking Grey Wagtail near the pond at the head of the garden.

a  Goldcrest   was busily collecting mosses from the garden wall  - too busy for me to catch a photo but a  Songthrush sat quietly on the wall watching the visitors go by

Down near the lower end of the garden were a pair of Treecreeper. This one seemed to be taking a rest.

As we wandered back up the path a Wren was giving the high notes some stick

and as we sat on the seat this little fella was darting about  too quick for me

On our last visit I thought that there were few Nuthatch about. Fear not they are there in force.
Blue Tits, Great Tits, Blackbirds and Chaffinches also present in abundance
