The Heavy mob.

Wet ’n’ windy, Rain, 6º, light to moderate SE.

A day for staying in and catching up with some domestic chores and observing the garden.
As well as the smaller species such as the Finches and Tits, the so-called “heavy mob” were in abundance in the garden today. The two Carrion Crow dominated along with fourteen Wood Pigeon, six Collared Dove, two Stock Dove and a Moorhen.

A visit of a couple of Lesser Redpoll again today associating with the Goldfinch, hope these become more regular. In addition, the two Treecreeper seen again today working the garden trees in a very systematic way and several visits by a Great-spotted Woodpecker.
There are over thirty different types of bird feeders at Marymead and the ones situated at the front attract a couple of species that we do not get in the rear of the garden or very rarely. These are House Sparrow, Starling and Pied Wagtail.
