Garden Survey

Have had a couple of days off with a stomach bug, so I had plenty of time to watch the garden for the NOA survey.
Unfortunately visitor numbers remain low-this weeks maximum totals:-
Wood Pigeon 1
Collared Dove 2
Dunnock 2
Robin 1
Blackbird 2
Blue Tit 1
Magpie 1
House Sparrow 8
Goldfinch 2
The Magpie is interesting. I sometimes see one at the bottom of the garden on garage roofs, and they sometimes sit on the house eaves and gutters, but this one (today) is the first I've ever seen come down to the feeders.
Only other observation of note was a fly over Grey Heron.
No Frigate Birds or Black Bellied Storm Petrels yet.
