Undaunted by the cold and drab start to the morning, Colin and Jill were up early and could be spotted in the hop garden, taking part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2023.
Our resident robin put in an appearance.
The flashy feathers of the magpies could be clearly seen.
Pied wagtails bobbed along in the Sunken Garden.
The call of the red kite was heard as it circled over head.
The blackbird was busy in the hedgerow.
There was the heavy, distinctive flap of wood pigeons on the wing.
Cheeky sparrows chirped noisily.
Whilst there wasn’t a parliament of rooks or a murder of crows, there were plenty of corvids that dropped by.
Starlings flitted overhead and a fast-travelling flock of unidentified birds wheeled around, perching on the hop garden wires and feeding in the hop garden.
A lesser spotted Colin was also snapped.
Whilst most of the birds kept well out of camera range, their song reached the ears of Colin and Jill, making a very serene (if cold!) start to the day!
The deer even put in an appearance too!
But here's a selection of shots we've taken recently around the Brewery. We hope you enjoy them.
