Hyde Hall, and todays birds

Last weekend, I went to the RHS gardens at Hyde Hall Essex with Sarah. It was their Autumn plant fair so lots of nice things to buy. Took my 35mm lens and a new B+W polariser to try out, here are a few.

Not much happening with the birding today. Went over to the river Beane-still bone dry.
At least six Buzzards in the area and two Red Kites. A few Meadow Pipits flying through and still got small flocks of Swallows and House Martins on passage.
Back home surprise of the day was a juvenile Greenfinch with the nine adult and juvenile Goldfinches. Cannot remember when I last saw one in the garden-they used to breed locally but went when the big Ash trees were felled some years ago.
