We have had a burial session for birds this last 2 weeks in the garden, because unfortunately, we have had 2 dead Greenfinch, and a very rare visitor to the garden was a dead Whitethroat under the Red tree, home to the past Willow Warbler. Here is a picture of one of the Greenfinches...
This exact bird was seen roosting and twitching in a bush over the top of this picture, so he obviously fell off the branch and died here. This disease is caused by trichomonosis. It has affected Chaffinches as well as the Greenfinch, but not as much. The other bird found dead was under the feeders. Why can't they be like this bird here...
Here's a video of a Greenfinch that doesn't look in a great condition, maybe carrying trichomonosis.

Moving on from the sad to the living birds, and highlights in the garden have been a group of 6 Magpies...
Here's one of them
Also, plenty of Starlings have been about, with a flock of about 100 flew over to roost.

Also, the local Chiffchaff has been putting in appearances in the evenings.
