Just as I left this morning I checked the feeders: about 15 Goldfinches, several Greenfinches, a couple or three Blue Tits, a couple of collared doves and, as a first time visitor, a Nuthatch... nice garden visitor :D
Visited Mum this morning then decided to nip into Warnham on the way home. The Osprey hasn't been seen for about a week now, I understand, so it may have departed.. A little Grebe was feeding and a solitary Great Crested Grebe.
The Greylag Geese that were there on my last visit had gone.. so just a stopping off place.
Finally had some sunshine which brought the autumn colour out on the trees.
The water was racing through the sluice gates, so I walked along the road to get these views of it.
I then crossed the road and was rewarded with a view back under the bridge.
Just a quick visit but good to have a few minutes in some sunshine!
