Pair of Bullfinch with juv, plenty of young birds eg Greenfinch, Chiff-Chaffs, Goldfinch, Reed Bunting, Dunnock plus Mallard ducklings. Reed Warbler heard briefly.
Chiff-Chaff - a few birds hung around the cage which has the feeders in waiting for other birds to arrive for food. As these birds left, on most occasions, the Chiff-Chaff followed and chased the bird with the food.
