Garden stuff and out of area

A weekend social trip to my old haunts in Cragg Vale found only Nuthatch of any note, by the Old Vicarage, and no migrants.

Back home in the garden this evening 3 Common Buzzard appeared - a record number, swirled around for a bit, had a bit of a mew and then went off the way they came. Also 3 singing Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Goldcrest and Curlew amongst the usual things.

Jackdaws are building a nest in our new chimney pot, nothing unusual about that you might think except this is a fire which is permanently on. Cenrtally heated Jackdaws. I think we'll have to shift them before they cause us a serious problem.
