Doing some garden chores today when a mixed flock of juv Long-tailed Tits and Blue Tits came through. It was a shame that the Long-tailed's moved on but the Blue Tit did hang around long enough to get this video.
Down on the patch, it was great to see huge numbers of Swifts soaring low over the tree tops one flock over 100 strong.
It was also nice to see a mixed flock of juv Linnets, Goldfinch and Greenfinch this also 100 strong.
A pair of Grey Wagtails also have a nest and seem to be feeding young.
Then back to the garden where this Goldfinch was feeding on the lawn.
SHETLAND HOLIDAY, Day Thirteen!
