Saturday… Sunny and 9ºC, but feeling warm for the 5th November.

Went to Highgate Common today hoping to photograph the small flock of Siskin I saw the other day. I did not even find them this morning. I thought I saw them over by the Island Pool, but it turned out to be a very large flock of Goldfinch. The Goldfinch were high and busily feeding on Silver Birch and Alder seeds….



With such a big flock I did scan through them, and luckily I noticed a couple of Redpoll. On such a quiet day, I was happy to find them. This one was sitting out in the glorious sunlight. On the bottom photo you can see some Silver Birch seeds the Redpoll has dropped….




Cormorant flew high over…


Robin came and had a look at me….


Anybody know where all the Winter Thrushes are?

Happy Bonfire Night!!!!
