Ramsgate Cemetery

You can't beat a good cemetery in the autumn, and Ramsgate is a marvel. Nicely positioned at the top of a hill (so migrant birds can see it), well wooded and quiet, it always has a good selection of wildlife on view.
Well actually, it's anything but quiet with these chaps around - hundreds roost here, and whizz around shrieking all day. The trees have an impressive array of holes that have been occupied by the parakeets.
Time to stroke a squirrel?

I thought you were supposed to hibernate in a hole or a dray, not on a branch?

And now a marvellous photo of a Firecrest...
or rather a holly branch were a firecrest was (flighty things, aren't they?)
