Well its that time of the year again.
So on a couple of mornings found me with year 4 at my local primary school - engaging in a little counting and id birds!
Both mornings were good - Monday brill as we were relatively warm and the sun shone....thursday not so good but it didn't rain!
I love the kids eyes they spot stuff!
Best birds have to be the Goldcrests - a pair..now are they over wintering or are they here for longer?
The 4 long tailed tits caused a stir and a Lesser Black backed gull was a good find...we have them flying over to and from the Thames.
Mainly though the usual local birds...and we actually heard and saw RN Parakeets flying over and once in the trees!
Why do they do this - go away when they are being counted?
