While I've not been able to get out wildlife watching lately, I've been reading A Wild Life by Martin Huges Games. A behind the scenes look at bringing nature to your TV and a wonderful read.

First patch visit since May, free Sunday's and early morning dry weather just havent been coming together this summer. Even today after all that waiting the weather was pretty dire with half an hour of rain and leaden skies. Pretty poor list then and no bird photos at all with it being so dark. Instead the view from the highest point on my route at Bromley farm.

Woodpigeon, House Sparrow, Yellowhammer, Carrion Crow, Blackbird, Collared Dove, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Blue Tit, Grey Partridge, Long-tailed Tit, Magpie, Wren, Swallow, Red-legged Partridge, Pheasant & Mallard.

Free time and early morning weekend weather haven't come together for a patch vist in ages, so I took the scooter up there for an hour on Saturday afternoon and was treated to Swallows whizzing down the country roads :-)

Lovely to be back on the patch this morning, especially with some warm sunshine which seemed to bring out all birds, a record total of 30. Four new ones added to the list, Common Buzzard, Lapwing, Linnet & Whitethroat. Kicking myself at only taking the compact camera, missed everything until a Dunnock decided to take pity on me and hung around for a snap.

Here's the full rundown..

Jackdaw, Canada Goose, Magpie, Chaffinch, Swallow, Carrion Crow, Great Tit, Greenfinch, Woodpigeon, House Sparrow, Blackbird, Robin, Pheasant, Blue Tit, Lapwing, Wren, Goldfinch, Rook, Linnet, Mistle Thrush, Buzzard, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Pied Wagtail, Mallard, Skylark, Chiffchaff, Yellowhammer, Collared Dove, Dunnock, Whitethroat, Rabbit & Hare.
