The Marsh Tit has reappeared just in time for 2018's year list.

Happy New Year all.

Welcome on board

I very rarely get a Jay so well done for that one especially Grey Wagtail in Winter only as well.

I'm still getting various birds in the garden on a regular basis - Robin, Blackbird, Blue/Great/Coal/Long-tailed Tit, Woodpigeon, Collared Dove, Goldfinch, Wren, Goldcrest, House Sparrows, Starlings and Magpie. Highlights over the past few months - Blackcap, GS Woodpecker, Whitethroat, Chiffchaff & Willow Warbler.

Plus 3 Squirrels and 2 Foxes almost daily!

Our two Carolina Wrens are daily visitors at our backyard bird feeders. They come to the Black Oil feeders, peanut feeders, suet feeders and pick around on the ground also for tidbits which have fallen from the raised feeders.
Other species which are usually seen are Red-bellied and Downy Woodpeckers, an occasional Hairy Woodpecker, Northern Cardinals, Bluejays, House Finches, House Sparrows, Dark-eyed Juncos, Black-capped Chickadees, White-breasted Nuthatches. Every now and again a European Starling drops in for a visit.

Larry, good to read from you. I hope everything is fine! Haven't read from you since last November.

Masses of birds in the garden at the moment due to the slightly colder weather. First Jay for a while appeared today.

A Pied Wagtail has also been around for the last few days, which is unusual for our garden.

Wife filmed this sparrowhawk today - not sure if it's a juvenille or why it was holding up it's right leg. Apparently it's "Go Vegan" week for Sparrowhawks
