Just having a look this afternoon in case more birds around than earlier on, only left the window in kitchen for a few minutes and came back to empty garden - aha - where is it -
Sneaky I thought
Hiding it's eye away from sight, could just be a pigeon up there! Except for that talon.
Boo, well thanks very much, haven't seen a Sprawk for a good number of days, did you have to come today while I'm doing the count !
The garden stayed empty for a good half hour by which time it was about 4.00 and not many came back to feed before retiring.
Here are a couple from this morning also
Yes he's back, along with mate
and a little friend
All happily getting along together
Should have counted the starlings and gulls around the front field maybe:-)
