Garden birdwatching...

Fairly quiet weekend again. Trying to get through mountains of coursework so my bird watching is confined to the garden and what I am able to see from it lately. Plenty of Chaffinch about, up to 8 Greenfinch, 6 Goldfinch, a male Siskin popped in briefly, up to 11 Blackbirds in the garden and surrounding trees, Dunnocks, House Sparrows, Starlings, Collared Dove, a Robin, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Coal Tit, the Rooks are a becoming regular sight and a Wren was flitting about along the fence today. Plenty of Common and Herring Gull, Jackdaw and Carrion Crow flying over the house, Red Kites and Buzzards seen regularly and up to 300 Wood Pigeon in the fields over the road. A few pictures from the garden:

Purples and greens.
Never get bored of watching these birds especially in the sunlight.
