Where there are trees there are birds

Today we went on a family outing to Batsford Arboreum. It was quite foggy when we arrived but was forecast to clear. Loads of birds around with Goldcrest and Coal Tits seemingly all around. Nuthatches were seen and heard and Great-spotted Woodpecker heard. As the fog cleared a few thrushes were seen passing over and a couple of Buzzards soared overhead. I would imagine a good list of birds could be had if that was all you did here, as it was the birds were just a nice extra to the gorgeous autumn leaf colours of the trees. After a lovely dinner of Roasted Ham with all the trimmings we wandered around the shop and garden centre before heading home. I was going to stop somewhere for a bit of birding but it started to rain so decided to head straight home.
