Garden Tick - 22.7.11

I stumbled out of bed this morning and suddenly remembered that it was bin day! I got my uniform on and my trainers and put the recycling out on the path and suddenly heard a Crossbill! It flew over the houses to the right of me and circled over the green before heading back over the houses. A few seconds later not 1 but 4 Crossbills flew over the houses and headed off NE loudly calling. At the park I bumped into an elderly couple who I meet every now and then who do a bit of birding. They were looking for the Little Owls but hadn't seen them. Just as they said that they probably wont see 1, hey presto 1 flew in! Later at KGVPF, 13 Swallows were flying past me with what looked like an adult feeding young in mid air.
