My moribund lockdown list inched to 35 this week with a high flying f Sparrowhawk over , annoying the local crows.

Lots of new fledglings about, young Dunnocks being fed by one of the parent birds a highlight.

Grey Heron low over edged Coronavirus Count to 29 this weekend.

Pair of Carrion Crows nesting in tall pine in Cemetery opposite very aggressive in defending their area, one having a real go at a Grey Squirrel this morning, The fuss when a couple of Magpies landed in their tree was very loud.

Great idea for these troubled times

My unremarkable suburban garden has a small pond and a couple of trees My best ever birds include Redstart and Waxwing so, you never know....

I overlook school playing fields to the front. St Marys Church Cemetery is also visible.
