South Brent

Awful weather this morning had the gardens feeders buzzing with feeding birds, very surprised to see a male Bullfinch coming in, the weather brought in far more birds than would be usual for this time of year.

The Wood pigeon movement mentioned in an early post continued once the weather began to lift with a count of 213 Woodies, 3 Stock Dove and one feral pigeon passing over.

The resident Buzzards may have a successful nest this season, the male was seen passing by mobbed by Crows as he carried a largish prey item to the nest site, a total of four Buzzards today included a very pale almost white male seen to fly past into the strong winds.

Four Raven overhead this morning

The day has seen an almost constant movement of Herring Gulls passing by the house, a total of four Greater Black Backed Gulls which included one juvenile.

Juvenile birds around the feeders and garden included, Robin, House Sparrows, Coal Tits, Greenfinch, Rooks, Magpies.

A pair of Greater Spotted Woodpeckers in at one point, then regular visits from the male to the feeders
