1 Life Tick, 3 Garden Newbies And The Return Of An Old Friend.

This morning I was up later than hoped (8:15). The weather was nice and I was looking forward to a day at Stithians. I sat in my bedroom with note pad and camera and recorded:
2 Great Tit's , 1 House Sparrow , 2 Dunnock's ,2F 1M Chaffinch's , 1M 1F Black Bird's , 1 Robin , 1 Wren , 2 Blue Tit's .

As in the Title the garden newbies were 1 Rook , 2 Wood Pigeon's And Goldfinch (A Life Tick). The returning bird was The male Black Cap. We haven't seen the male or female black cap since before christmas.
So out on the road.
