Not so common Blue Tits don't seem to get as many as last year :(

Noticed this Female Chaffinch poor thing, 
First spotted her August 2nd .
Last year had a couple of other chaffinch's with foot rot.

 Female and Male just Bullfinches very jumpy !

As usual Goldfinches Squabling !

Then the sun came out so after tea headed out through campsite, I mean Bath Mill all finished now and looks good.

On Brook the Kingfisher darted past me and disappeared. While watching a Mistle Thrush was collecting worms almost at my feet I lifted the camera up and gone !!
Walking up byway saw this Roe Deer .

At Village around 50 Barn Swallows a few House Martin and ! 5 House Sparrows a short but  pleasant walk on leaving Bath Mill the bank at its exit in full bloom all planted by Bath Mill.

 Good Job !
