More rain and a garden tick!

Light to heavy rain, fresh to strong variable winds, max 11º.

Attempted to go for a walk but twenty minutes out I realised I was on to a loser so came back home, light was poor and rain was heavy.
The rest of the day spent listening to Led Zeppelin’s new CD and viewing the Bluray of “Celebration Day” also looking out into a very autumnal looking garden and meadow and watching the feeders .....and this eventually paid off with two Lesser Redpoll, a new garden tick! (72 species to date).

There has been a max of nine Goldfinch; eight Chaffinch and two Greenfinch at the feeders on and off most of the day and early afternoon saw the two Redpoll present for around five minutes before flying off into the meadow hedgerow.
Also six Collared Dove and ten plus Wood Pigeon feeding as well as the usual visiting tits, also two Blackbird, a Great-spotted Woodpecker, a Wren, two Dunnock and a Robin.
