Very little to report really. Not a lot going on here. Plenty of Sparrows and Starlings attacking the fat balls and peanut feeder. No sign of the Heron, nothing captured on the wildlife camera. Occasionally a lone Goldfinch arrives to check whether their feeders have been returned to their rightful place. It is a few day now since I saw any ill looking birds so I hope get the seed feeders back up in the not too distant future.
Trying different settings on the Canon I at last found out which to use so that birds photographed against a bright sky don't end up as silhouettes.
There are still fleeting visits from the tit families which dash in, grab a bite and dash to the safety of the nearby bushes.
From time to time I manage to get a glimpse of a Wren as it searches round all the junk lying about some parts of the garden.
The only night visitor has been the occasional cat. I notice they pass very quickly through the part of the garden covered by the Cat Gard so it is doing a reasonable job of keeping them away from the bird feeding area.
