The seasons are changing and although the trees in the garden are still in leaf, the wildlife behaviour and the visitors are changing. We had our first large flock of Ring-necked Parakeets in the garden today. Instead of the summer norm of one or two, 14 descended on a single tree. Strangely its not a berry tree so it was not a source of food as far as I could tell, but the raucous noise of 14 parakeets soon attracts the attention.

Also around in far higher numbers it seems are Grey Squirrels as I counted 7 in the garden at one point today.

Western Jackdaw too are increasing in numbers from the occasional single in the summer to a party of 4 or 5 which visited the garden today.
