Still no greenfinch

Amazingly six weeks in and still no greenfinch on the patch.  Normally one of the most common birds around and they've all gone!  Apparently there's a nasty little virus that's not very nice to them.

But on the other hand...

Three garden ticks this month:  Long-tailed duck, red-breasted merganser and a couple of smew.  All from the front room.  Saves getting off my fat arse.

These and a long-staying Iceland gull and other bits and bobs put me on a rather lowly 65 species (41.77%).

Still, the weather is fine and there's still a greenfinch  to be had somewhere...

Happy Days
