Thursday 13th.November 2008

Three days with a chainsaw in the hand , has once again produced very little wildlife . Even the female Brambling has deserted the garden .
Before working on the Common today , I stopped at Keston Ponds . Things are pretty much the same in water fowl numbers , but 3 male and 2 female Manderins have reappeared .
It was and brush up time for a couple of the Canada Geese .
On Tuesday , I did manage to get shots of a male Pheasant ,
and a female Blackbird , both in some sunshine ,
and also a male Kestrel looking for his next meal .
Yesterday , in a break , I got a couple of poor shots of Fieldfare , very wary birds .

Apart from that , it was very quiet .
