Bird watching in Saddle Hill

I went to the forest in Saddle hill in the hope of seeing a flock of Long-tail tits that I had encounter in previous occasions. There was no such luck. However, there wasn't a shortage of birds to be seen and heard: Great tits, Coal tits, Chaffinches, Mistle  thrushes and Robins, all singing in the sunshine, and even a pair of Ravens.

As I was walking along, I noticed that a lot of the ditches were completely covered with Common hair cap moss, the red spore capsules stood out in contrast with the bright green leaves.
