The list of birds seen today doesn't look particularly impressive on paper but our feathered friends behaved particularly well, allowing close and prolonged views. A very good turn-out for the event, so thanks everyone who turned up.
Wren - sat on top of fences and bushes and feeding on the grass. In short, flaunting themselves.
Greenfinch - 3 or 4 birds singing and one giving superb views as it fed on the grass.
Goldfinch - a small party seen
Chaffinch - 2 or 3, lots of song heard
Starling - 1 or 2
Long Tailed Tit - at least 2 showing well as they fed in the trees
Dunnock - another very showy bird, seen well near the pond.
House Sparrow - a female near the pond gave good views and provided a good comparison with the previous species
Collared Dove - a couple seen and heard
Goldcrest - 2 birds showing well (at least for this normally elusive species!) in a pine tree near the pond.
Robin - 2 or 3 birds seen and heard
The next walk will be on 16th May - the last before the summer break. All welcome.
