The birdlife slowly began to appear as the sun rose from behind the houses and over the course of a couple of hours I saw the following birds in or around my back garden:
- House Sparrow
- Blue Tit
- Coal Tit
- Wood Pigeon
- Collared Dove
And then I heard the distinctive sound of geese way up high in the sky. I looked up and saw my first skein of 50+ geese flying in a fantastic V shape eastwards. The sunlight made them all look slightly golden but I'm pretty sure they were Pink-footed Geese.
So the Jay and the geese were the two highlights of an interesting mornings birdwatching from the comfort of my patio windows, but I never did get to see the little wren.
