Finally got the roof finished, thank god, just hope it holds up ! So after 2 totally birdless days, well unless you are counting Brambling it was good to get out on patch. But not before 2 hours of Badminton this morning (my new way to get fit). A male Blackcap in the garden replaced the female that had been around lately, and it became evident that not a lot was new. The female Redstart, Chiffchaff, 2 Robins and the female Blackcap were all still in situ, as well as 6 Brambling. Highlight of the day was a patch tick Bluethroat in the large tattie rig, but frustratingly it was incredibly elusive and impossible to photograph. Hopefully it will remain til the morning so i can give it more time.
