They are probably Tawny Owls then if there are some not too far away. The silhouette of the bird on the right certainly looks like a Tawny Owl.

Last year, we saw quite a significant increase in the number of Jays in gardens between August and October. These colourful birds are mainly after acorns, so their numbers partially depend on how good the acorn crop is. Species information here: ;

Striking Nuthatches tend are seen in around 20% of Garden BirdWatcher's gardens during most September. If you have peanut feeders in your garden, look out for them. Find out more about this species that seems to prefer to be upside down here: ;

A Great image of a Coal Tit feeding on an apple to start the day. Although we associate many garden birds with eating seeds and peanuts from our feeders, they are also partial to fruit if they can get it. If you have any left over apples, why not put them out for the birds?

Around how big were they size wise? Although they are most likely to be Tawny Owls, the silhouette is almost reminiscent of Little Owl, which is around Starling sized.

Look out for mouse like Treecreepers in gardens at this time of year! These unobtrusive birds will sometimes accompany mixed tit flocks as they roam around gardens in search of food. Their high pitches calls often give them away. Species information here: ;

We couldn't resist sharing this lovely image of a Nuthatch tucking into an apple! Although they are better known for eating seeds and peanuts in gardens, they are clearly also partial to fruit from time to time! More about these striking birds here:
