I was in the garden late this evening, at around 10pm, putting fresh water for the birds so its ready for the morning, when I saw 2 large white(ish) birds flew above, making noise as they flew. I wish I knew what they were, never seen them before. They sounded like geese of some sort. Really unusual sight :jawdrop:

If it is around the size of a blackbird, then more than likely a thrush. If it is smaller, could well be a tree pipit. My best guess.

It was quite high and far from me, and from what I could see it was about the size of a blackbird, so it must be a Mistle Thrush :)
Pretty bird :love:

Back along I put some hard fat slabs in a fat ball feeder. Never had any takers for ages. But lately I noticed that something had been pecking away at it, but never seen what it was. That is until today, a bloomin great rook was hanging from it just now. I wandered what all the flapping was. How the heck it managed to hang on I don't know as it is only one of those small acorn feeders that holds two fat balls. Must have been hanging on the branches of the tree as well.
