With a later than normal start at work yesterday morning and a clear sky I managed to get some morning light on the regular dog walk up the track this morning. Initially nothing doing until on the way back a distinctive 'chup' call overhead secured 3 Tree Sparrows flying west fairly high calling away. Only my second parish record since moving here (the first being a pair briefly on wires in the street before flying west a couple of Septembers ago) there was no double edged sword syndrome as I wouldn't have seen them from the garden. They now equal the same number of records for... Richard's Pipit!
