Garden ticks galore!

Having secured the ever dodgy Ring-necked Parakeet on the garden list in the week, late yesterday evening a female Shoveler flew into Crowtree Cottage airspace and on to the list, and this morning, a most unexpected and welcome addition in the form of a flock of 23 Crossbills over to the north-west at 0545h whilst emptying the moth traps. I certainly would have missed these if I had still been in bed (my usual place at 0545h on a Sunday) or been indoors, so more than pleased that mothing is not only enjoyable but now supplying garden ticks as well! Garden list now up to 110 in under three years. Only one behind my Thetford (Norfolk) garden list which took me 9 years to amass.
