At Bath Buildings there were a couple of plants still in flower, Herb Robert and Ivy-leaved Toadflax. There was quite a bit of Rusty-backed Fern on the wall too - we seem to have lots of this attractive fern in Monty.
A Grey Squirrel was commandeering my neighbour's feeders this morning.
I have 2 Missing-sector Orbweb SpidersZygiella x-notata in my flat, one in the bathroom and this one in the kitchen. The latter is expanding her web with lines of silk radiating from the window onto various items on my kitchen worktop.
Lots of common bird activity in the park this morning, with a party of Blue and Great Tits feeding in the trees, a Jay, half a dozen Chaffinches including a nice male bird, a Blackbird, 2 singing Wrens plus the resident Woodpigeons and Magpies. A couple of Grey Squirrels were searching for food and there was lots of White Deadnettle in flower.
There was very little to see in the park other than a Jay, a Blue Tit, some Magpies and a Blackbird. Montpelier Station wasn't much better with just a female Blackbird and some House Sparrows of note.
I had a surprise last night - there was a Flea Beetle on my pillow! It was most likely to be a Cabbage Stem Flea Beetle which are still around at this time of year. I think I must have accidentally brought it in from outside!
I was puzzled by a spider in the kitchen this evening - it didn't seem to have any pale pattern on its abdomen so I wondered if it was something new, but the experts on Facebook have confirmed it as a False Widow (Steatoda grossa or Cupboard Spider). I've encountered a closely related specues in the kitchen before quite recently. This one is lacking a leg but otherwise seems OK.
A very gloomy and overcast afternoon produced few birds of note although 2 Goldcrests were very obliging and gave prolonged views. Also about a dozen Goldfinches, several Woodpigeons and Magpies and a Great Tit were noted.
