We've had an influx of Long Tailed Tits recently up to 11 flitting around the garden a couple of times a day, you can hear them calling long before they appear.
A couple of Blue and Great Tits visit the feeder regularly and a Robin has started making an appearance again. A caught a couple of Warblers in the trees on two separate occasions Chiffchaff for one and possibly Willow for the other but I didn't get great views. The Magpie family I noticed earlier in the year are all still around I hear them in the trees and they spend a lot of time in the disused factory across the road.
A spider took over the bug house for a while.
Walking in the park about a month ago it was already looking a little autumnal.
We got caught in a rain shower there and saw Bees and a Pellucid Hoverfly, quite lovely.
A couple of visits to the urban woodlands near the end of August before work and I was surrounded by birds in large numbers, Blue & Great Tits, Warblers, Blackbirds, Bullfinch, Woodpigeons, Robins and a rat along the path. It was a lovely moment and certainly a great way to start the day.
There have been a few moths around.
Including this one in the bathroom at work (for which I was mocked mercilessly when I headed in there with my camera, however everyone did concede it was pretty!).
The garden is filled with cobwebs and sun catches them beautifully.
I even managed a little birding at the West Indian Carnival watching a Buzzard of all things above the trees in Potternewton park. The BBQ smoke looked quite stunning in the sunlight.
Up until Sunday there were still a lot of Speckled Woods in the garden, the most we've ever had this year......
....and a couple of weeks ago the first ever Painted Lady i've seen in the garden was sat right outside the front door .
Then this morning leaving for work a charm of around 30 Goldfinch flew overhead, I don't think i'll ever tire of hearing them.
