Mostly at Home

I didn’t get out of bed until half-nine this morning which is fairly unusual for me. I spent a few minutes checking out the front garden. Great Tit, Blue Tit, Chaffinch, Dunnock, Robin, Blackbird and House Sparrow were all seen which is  a pretty good selection for here. After a late breakfast we had a family garden clearing session during which great views were had of a Red Kite as it drifted over the village. At just gone three I managed to sneak off to Coate for the last hour or so of daylight. Plenty going on at the far hide with all the regular ducks around including nine Goosander.  A Kingfisher was seen twice and just as I was leaving the Great White Egret flew in. From the first hide a Sparrowhawk flew over, a party of Long-tailed Tits were on the feeders and the regular Water Rail was around along with four Moorhens.
