After filling up the bird feeders and bringing in logs for the wood burner I took a short stroll up the lane beside my house. In the hedge just 20 yards from my property a splendid male Reed Bunting appeared and flew into a sedgy field. Now if that birds had gone in the other direction and found my feeders it could have been species number 76 for my garden.
Male Reed Bunting
I must keep my eyes peeled in case it turns up. A Willow Tit did turn up at the feeders today.
