An unexpected school run was dropped on me today plus a appointment in the morning meant I've only one outing over the last five days. However, hirundines were still streaming past overhead and on route to Canterbury I narrowly missed a fifty strong flock of siskins skimming across the road. Later on in the afternoon, whilst tending my flock, the only birding possible was to watch the c.20 goldfinches, plus sparrows and blue tits on the garden feeders but an unexpected siskin brightened up the proceedings during the rainy afternoon. I was able to get several shots through the double glazing and rain as it stayed for about half an hour. A year tick for the garden!
