I made my way round and found him tucked up in the corner with his female . As soon as I took this the pair disappeared into the overhanging vegetation . I wonder if they will stay and breed , there are plenty of holes in mature trees that would suit , who knows . The only new residents were found on the top pond , in the form of a pair of Greylag Geese looking very pompous . On the same pond was a Black Headed Gull atop a post , almost in full summer plumage . The only interest during the day was a Chiffchaff which called constantly all day . The Long Tailed Tits must have finished their nest as all was quiet there .
The latest episode of the Brambling cereal , played out this morning . I don't want to milk the story , but for those who have invested in Weetabix , we had toast and honey for breakfast , and both male Bramblings were on the path , ( thanks for the puns Ken ) .
