Bring me sunshine

Some good birds at Fairlawn Road this morning - 6 Long-tailed Tits, a Coal Tit, a Goldcrest, a couple of Blue Tits, a Jay and 10 fly-over Starlings. Invertebrates along the verge included a Dark Bush-cricket, a Nursery Web Spider and 5 Green Shieldbugs.

The ivy-covered wall along St Andrews Road was absolutely swarming with Honey Bees, Eristalis hoverflies, various other flies and a presumed Common Wasp. Nearby a Garden Spider partook of its prey and a Red Admiral basked in the warm sunshine.

The station feeders attracted a female Chaffinch, a Greenfinch, a Carrion Crow, 3 or so Magpies and a Grey Squirrel. A Great Tit was seen nearby.

Not much to report from Montpelier Park other than a party of Long-tailed Tits and a singing Coal Tit.

Yesterday a group of 15 Starlings flew over Richmond Road.
