A busy day in the garden

I spent an hour watching the birds in the garden yesterday and was surprised at the number of different species that I saw.  Here’s a list of everything I saw

Blackbird, Blackcap, Black-headed Gull, Blue Tit, Brambling, Bullfinch, Chaffinch, Dunnock, Great Tit, Greenfinch, Goldcrest, Goldfinch, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Jackdaw, Jay, Long-tailed Tit, Magpie, Nuthatch, Ring-necked Parakeet, Robin, Rook, Stock Dove, Wood Pigeon and Wren.  A total of 24 species not counting the Red Kite that flew over.

Today I decided to photograph them but couldn’t manage the same number.  Could be down to the heavy snow showers and bitter cold but who can tell.  Here’s a collection of what I did manage today
