I saw a Brambling in the garden today….. just one and on his own, not with chaffinches as is often the case. Here he is ( the photo was taken through the window so as not to scare him off)Records2


Now since purchasing our house back in 1990, I have kept records of what birds, animals, and butterflies I have seen on each visit to the house. I have a little system which is a star if I see it from the house, a cross if it is within about 10Km from the house and a letter C if we were on the coast.Records1

Looking back through my record I have only recorded Bramblings twice before and that was way back in 1996 and 1997 and on neither occasion was it a star it was only a cross. So today was a first for birds around the house.
