Working at home today so able to see two unusual visitors to the garden. Eurasian Treecreeper is an uncommon bird in the garden (This being the third garden record this year). They always frequent the same part of the garden, indeed the same 2 or 3 trees so I wonder if we are on the edge of their territory and they only feed here from time to time.

The second pleasing sighting was a first for the garden – Pied Wagtail. They used to be fairly regular on the patch from the area to the West of the Tarn around Mottingham Station but seemed not to have been present this year so it was great to see one getting up to the Northern end of the patch and spending a little while in our garden.
