"Local Patch" Sightings 13/4/17

Hello all,
A twenty minute walk on a road alongside the local Golf Course produced a few birds...

A Willow Warbler showed fantastically well, which was my first WW of the year. There were also around 15 Chaffinches, as well as a group of 4 Long-Tailed tits, 4 Great tits and 3 Blue tit. Still I wait, however, for my first Wheatear of the year...

In the garden, there were 8 House Sparrow, 6 Starling (the numbers have improved since the AvonBirds post!) 5 Goldfinch and 4 Dunnocks, as well as quite a few Blackbirds, Blue tits, Great tits and Woodpigeons.

I recently purchased a pair of Vortex Viper HD 8X42 binoculars from the wonderful LCE at Chew, with some of my BigBang fair prize money; I am glad to say that they perform fantastically! There should be a review of these soon, once I have had the chance to use them more.
George
