In what was a quiet month 23 bird species were seen on the patch this month.The year’s total remains at 49. The Highlight was undoubtedly the Sparrowhawk enjoying his evening meal in the middle of the garden on the 26th. This brought home to me the luck involved in wildlife watching as had this occurred 10 minutes later I would have left home to catch a train and would have missed it.
