Bird, wildlife and flower log, 30 September - 6 October 2013

Spotted two blackbirds this week, just the once. One I think is master black, his feathers are now all black, but he still has his dull beak. The other I think is the Real Mr Black, with some new feathers! All the blackbirds are keeping a low profile at the moment, but they are still around.

It's been a lovely sunny and warm day today. I have been out chopping back the herbs, lavender and a few other things before grabbing my camera to make the most of the sun before it disappeared to get a few shots. I was lucky to find a couple of bees buzzing around in the sedum. They were the same type and I think it is a common carder bee.

There have been two nuthatches in the garden this week. One is the usual and the other is quite large. Like last week there has been lots of chaffinches and greenfinches. Otherwise not really much else to report, except I am pleased with my photo!!!
