Quiet rambling bird walk today

Another fairly quiet, warm-in-the-sun, cool-in-the-shade sort of day. We walked the west side of A21 and circumnavigated the B's, following the brushy plantings and pausing on the bridge awhile. The autumn olives and other fruiting trees are a real bird-magnet these days.
