At lunchtime, while the kettle was boiling, I glanced out of the window, and saw a flock of sparrows milling about on the path. They were still there when I returned with the camera.
They were eating seed spilt from the hanging feeder you can just see the bottom of, by the post on the left.
A solitary starling was chased away from the seed on the ground. It went to wash in the bird-bath at the far end of the path, and was again surrounded by sparrows.
Then 3 collared doves arrived.
There have not been a lot of birds to be seen in the garden recently, apart from the regular breakfast time pair of dunnocks.
That's the trunk/stem of Mme Alfred Carriere in the lower picture, on the right.
