I was just leaving home when 3 Goldfinches flew into the garden and started taking over the feeders. The Chaffinches tried to scare them off.
One of the Goldfinches was doing a tail-wagging display.
It was a nice start to the day. The newly arrived Barn Swallows were hanging in this time so they must be the local breeding birds.
A tricky bird to get to grips with was a Willow Warbler that was keen to feed up after it's long journey.
This Barn Swallow was keen to stake a claim on it's nest site - hopefully they will have a better breeding season this year.
An addition to the patchwork challenge was a male Northern Wheatear.
