Goldfinch Chicks are Back

Been a bit quiet over the last few days. Hayfever has hit, as has a cold-not a great combination, makes for a great time at work.
Locally Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps still singing behinds the doctors surgery at Poplars, and there is at least one Song Thrush there. Have heard a Song Thrush from the garden as well albeit rather distant. Not seen much else, though Jays seem to be more visible these days.
Getting regular visits from the Chaffinch pair, one or two House Sparrows are still around as is the Greenfinch and the Blackbirds Pigeons and Collared Doves are always present. Have not seen any Robins or Dunnocks in the garden recently, not sure if they are nesting locally, but a Wren is heard outside most mornings. Tonight the Goldfinches are down and at least one pair brought has three chicks, the first this year.
