Baxter Basics...

Today was largely dark, dreary and drizzly with a breeze from the NE. An ideal day for seeing what is coming to the feeders in the garden, so this is what periodic glances from the living room revealed this morning...

Collared Dove 10
Woodpigeon 2
Jackdaw 6+
Rook 1
Starling 3
Pheasant 1 male and 1 female
Great spotted Woodpecker 1 male and 1 female
House Sparrow 40+
Tree Sparrow 2
Chaffinch 14+
Goldfinch 9
Greenfinch 1
Robin 3
Dunnock 4
Coal, Blue and Great Tits 3+ each.

All taken through the window...

Ian Fisher asked if I wanted to go to the Farnes for the Woodlark this morning. Tempting as it was, and a county tick for just about everyone, I had a few things to do so declined the offer. Apparently it showed very well down to 8 feet. I'll look forward to the photos....There'll be a mainland one, one of these days....

I love the picture you have heading your blog. I had to go back and look at it several times. The pictures taken through your window are lovely.
