There's a water pipe and tap along Hatton Road. A small puddle had formed below it, and when I walked past yesterday this group of birds were using it for their morning bath:

Hi there,

I tried to look them up.  The flock appeared to be 'Black-throated Laughingthrush and are regular residents.


Thanks Thomas, I wondered what they were. They were quiet here, but looking at this video they can make a lot of sounds.
