I have to share some excitement too, about two sentences back while writing this blog post I took a phone call and stood up to look into the garden. A small brown bird flew across the garden to the our big sycamore, landed on the trunk and then crept higher.
It took a second for this to sink in before loudly exclaiming “That’s a Treecreeper!” to the bemused person on the other end of the phone. Only the second garden record of Treecreeper in 22 years, it hung about long enough for me to grab the camera for a record shot. Garden bird watching is just the best sometimes!
