The first Redwings have been paying us a visit in the last couple of weeks, after our holly berries. A male blackcap was spotted in the Privet (Ligustrum) last week; there are quite a few little sweet black berries on these that smaller birds like. We had a pair of Jay visiting for the first time in many years. Gt. spotted Woodpecker has been a lot in evidence this year.

Took a trip beside the Exe Estuary yesterday, lovely bright day. Plenty of Brent Geese on the water & some on the local fields grazing on the grass. Oyster Catchers, Little Egrets & Merganser were observed. Graham & Jean

Our first Fieldfare today. The Blackbirds, Redwings, Dunnock & Chaffinch are attacking the Holly trees - won't be much left for real winter! Graham & Jean

There are no birds in my garden at the moment, just a grey squirrel! I guess there must be plenty of natural food still about. Andy

.... they're all in the next-door-but-one's garden. Hopefully some of them will stray into my garden and notice the feeders! Andy
