Rain Stopped Play.

I planned to visit Treskilling Downs for the first time this morning hoping to see the Yellowhammers, Whitethroats and Butterflies . One look at the grey sky, mist and rain convinced me otherwise. I stayed at home and did a garden watch instead. Luckily I saw our Goldcrest that has been missing since April 27th.
Most of the garden birds have been disappearing for periods of up to a fortnight...the Coal Tit was one of them but today it was very active. Male and female Bullfinches are still with us. The Greenfinches and Goldfinches have slightly increased in numbers....but not like the Starlings that come in force with the youngster in tow. Three Collared Doves were also recorded today which was very pleasing as we lost them for six months or more.
The only other thing worth recording was the G.S.Woodpecker in the Penrice area.
