We've eventually sorted out garden chairs and the weather's nice enough to warrant working outside so I took my laptop out for my shift today. I think I'll do it again as keeping an ear and an eye open resulted in a spate of garden ticks, the least expected being an eastbound Siskin. Three Mediterranean Gulls flew over in the morning, followed by calls from a couple more birds just before dusk. A Greylag Goose tracked west, as did a Cormorant later and three Swallows went through. I also heard a Linnet calling overhead. Seven local Swifts provided constant entertainment (I counted 11 yesterday).
