Dazed & Confused

Overcast and murky, 13°, light NE.

A much cooler day than of late and no butterflies on the wing.

Very little noted today, a single Swallow flew north over the hill, a Raven over and 2 Mistle Thrush and 2 Grey Partridge on the hill.

Early evening there was a sudden thump on the living room window and a few feathers falling. On looking out I could see a grounded Greenfinch that had obviously flown into the window. I went down stairs and out to the garden to find the bird in a rather dazed and confused state.

I picked it up and determined that there were no obvious injuries and just held it for a while. It still looked a bit dazed so I put it down on a flower pot and went up to get a small box for it to recover in. by the time I got back down and approached it, it decided to fly off, appearing none the worse for its ordeal. Good result!

The Greenfinch
Grey Partridge
More litter - this came drifting over the hill and landed approx half mile away in the middle of a field of barley. 60th birthday pollution and a danger to wildlife!
