Feels like Autumn, yet still more fledglings

Autumn is definitely in the air. The trees are changing colours, the Robin is singing from the top of the tree, Jackdaw flock are getting bigger and there has been an influx of Goldfinches, yet we still have fledglings appearing in the garden.

Greenfinch Fledglings – Great to have some of these, numbers are really down!

Loads of Wasps too. It’s fascinating watching them drink from the bird bath! Must get a photo of that
