25/1/10: Today's local 'spots'.

14 Starlings on St. Paul's church roof, Mill Road (yes, there used to be a Windmill here), plus Great Tit, Blue Tit and Blackbird in the grounds.

11 Wood Pigeons in trees lining Barnehurst School Drive.

Noticing from a distance that one of the 'lumps' silhouetted in a garden tree on Barnehurst Avenue, opposite Coniston Rd, didn't look quite like a Wood Pigeon, I whipped out the bins. It was a Mistle Thrush, which flew off to a nearby TV aerial where it took minor offence to being joined by a second Wood Pigeon. 2 Long-tailed Tits arrived in the same garden shortly afterwards.

For the second time in four days I inadvertently disturbed a Wood Mouse in one of my back garden compost bins.
