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...
