Where Have All the Birds Gone and a Trip down the Canal! 10/01/12

The feeders are full, the sun is shining, but not a dicky bird! Well that's not strictly true a Woodpigeon was sitting on one of the trees, bit otherwise not a thing. Its been like that for a couple of days, whenever I get time to look in the garden there's nothing there. So as the sun was shining and I needed to get out the house (the joys of working from home) I decided to go for a walk along the canal as far as Warrens Hall.

So wandered down and was rewarded with a Buzzard, then another, then another until there were 5 circling around between the canal and Powke Lane Cemetery. Brilliant, never came that close but managed a couple of far away shots...

So after watching them for a few minutes, carried on walking along the canal and on to Warrens Hall and back:
The canal:
Buzzard (5), Magpie, Woodpigeon, Mallard, Coot, Lesser Black Backed Gull, Black Headed Gull, Moorhen, Robin, House Sparrow, Starling, Pied Wagtail, Blue Tit, Chaffinch, Goldfinch, Crow
Warrens Hall:
Canada Geese, Mute Swan (4), Great Spotted Woodpecker (2), Redwings, Kestrel (1), Great Tit, Grey Heron (1)
