About a dozen birds. Surprisingly they hung around - normally they run away.
No interactions present.
Hi Simon, I had a similar encounter the other day (see 1st post on carousel). I can't normally get with 100 yards of them before they take flight but these birds stayed on the ground and were reasonably close, seems to be a one off. Chris.

...in this case a two-off! ;-)
Seriously, though, it's only happened to me once before. Then, the bird walked out onto a path a few yards from me. When it spotted me, it puffed up its feathers and just strolled off, no trace of panic. Hmm.
