Les oiseaux du jour

In the park this morning: a goldfinch? It didn't have a red face, though. [Edit: saw another today, 20th, and reading Simon Barnes Bad birdwatchers' companion on the train, I wonder if it was actually a greenfinch, which is what my son told me they were. It didn't look green, but apparently, they don't, always). Later edit: saw some today (26th) and they did look a bit green.]

And a yellow wagtail (or a grey one), by the side of the river.

This was in addition to the usual wrens, thrushes, ducks (including one sitting on an ivy covered fence), moorhens, dunnocks, robins.

In garden -sparrows, starlings.
