Then two cheeky Robins flitted into the trees at the front of our garden. As I watched their boisterous progress through the branches, I noticed a Song Thrush sitting quietly in the Robinia.

Looking out at the back I noticed a Goldfinch on the old teasel seedheads. In the next quarter of an hour, several different types of birds appeared in the garden. Great tits, Blue Tits, Robins and Starlings were all attracted by the food I had put on the bird tables.

At about 9:35 a Jackdraw, a first for my birdwatch list, perched briefly on a conifer. I found myself glaring at a Herring Gull that seemed to be glued to my neighbour's roof and couldn't be counted. My hour was rounded off by the reappearance of the robins.
