On Friday morning at just after 11am I was walking from Frimley to Farnborough North. As I was passing the seat overlooking the lake nearest Frimley, I noticed a bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula) in a bush. It had a red front, a grey back, a black head and a white patch on the front of its wings. It was joined in the bush by a flock of long-tailed tits. I turned round to continue on my way, and almost immediately four greenfinches flew across my path. Further along the path, in the denser woodland there were the usual robins, great tits, magpies and a jay. And to top it all, when I got to Farnborough North there was a cormorant perched on the tree by the big lake, holding its wings out to dry in the breeze.
