Good day

Had a good day in the garden: 4 Long T Tits, 2 Blackcaps (M & F), 6 Blackbirds, 12 Starlings, 6 Wood Pigeons (2 in garden and 4 in trees), H Gulls, 2 Carrion Crows (in trees), 6 H Sparrows, 1 Goldcrest, 2 Dunnocks, 6 Chaffinches, 1 Songthrush, 2 Coal Tit, 2 Bullfinch (both M), 2 Robins, 2 Blue Tits, 2 Magpies, 2 Great Tits (Trevor & I, haha), 1 Firecrest.
They don't seem to mind me pottering about, which is nice. I watched a L T Tit take a large suet pellet from the bird table and fly up to a branch, holding onto the branch with one foot and hanging upside down, he held the pellet in his other foot and tried to munch away. Then, he dropped it. I so wanted to pick it up for him!!!
Walking the dog nearby this morning: 2 Redwing, Blackbirds.
Walking the dog nearby this evening: Approx 20 Magpies (a parliament I believe).
