Usual suspects in my garden - sparrows, assorted tits, robins, woodpeckers, turtle doves, wren. No chaffinches today.
In the paddock we have a flight of 7 or 8 Egyptian geese doing aerial circuits. The Canada geese have gone foraging but will be back to sleep later and there are mallards and moorhens in the stream as well as 2 great egrets who have arrived for winter and the heron family which isn't that keen on sharing the territory but can't bully them like they do the small egrets.
