Eastfield, Ashton Keynes: Big Garden Birdwatch count in my garden this morning.  Total of 51 birds of 18 species.  Highlights were 7 Blackcaps together and 7 Reed Buntings plus a Grey Wagtail and a White Wagtail.  Among the Blackcaps was a new male with a ring on the right leg which brings my local flock up to a minimum of 11 birds, 5 males and 6 females.  Up to 3 Coal Tits have been present this week but only one on the count today.  Compared with last year the numbers of Reed Buntings and Long-tailed Tits are down but there were two extra species on the count this time.
