Garden lifer and further winter arrivals

Back in Whitminster I had the rest of the week off to catch up with multiple jobs at home, the weather was still great. Local walks with bouts of work in the garden being the daily routine. A Coal Tit signalled the winter as it called at dusk.

On the 25th October I was clearing out the shed when I heard a Crossbill calling, stepping out I saw three large finches flying off SSW over the house with another settled in the tall Christmas tree in the garden, it also flew off over the gardens calling. Fabulous to record this species at home.

On 26th  October a Jay was on the feeders when it, 5 Magpies, c30 Jackdaw and a Raven began mobbing something in the trees, a Cat was high up in the branches.

My last day off saw the weather turn for the worst but I was out and about before the rain arrived, c30 Fieldfare passed through Whitminster. Down on the Severn shore I spent itme with some other wintering arrivals…
