Bird Sightings 12/4/16

Hello all,
Garden was fairly quiet, with only really Goldfinch, House Sparrow, Blackbird, Woodpigeon and Blue tit present. However, after yesterday's post, I found half of a blackbird shell under the tree. This seemed to have been hatched naturally, with the sides pushed out. If the egg had been predated, the sides would've been pushed in, and the egg would have most likely been whole, save for the hole in the egg where it was predated.



Sand Point

1 HOOPOE, 1 PIED FLYCATCHER, 1 GRASSHOPPER WARBLER (which was heard as well as seen), and 2 RING OUZEL.
Other Sand Point Stuff-3 Wheatear, 2 redstart, 20 Chiffchaff, 10 Willow Warblers, Blackcap and 15 Magpie. A small flock of Sand Martin were also present, and  a FULMAR earlier in the day, as well as swallow making a flyover.
I myself didn't see the Hoopoe, after two hours of waiting, but there are record shots on Avon Birding website. I did see the other birds above, except the Fulmar.
