Rain And A Robin


What a dreadful day!  Low cloud, persistent rain and almost darkness all day.  I lost hope of birds until a lull in the downpour over the lunch period.  Then a number of birds were seen feeding in the garden.  Three Cirl Buntings, 2 Black Redstarts, 2 Sardinian Warblers, 3 Chiffchaffs, 6 Blackcaps and a Pied Flycatcher appeared.  In addition a splendid Robin came into view.  This species is a winter visitor here and this was the first of the autumn.
