Two magpies have been very busy today collecting nesting material from the garden. They are building (or touching up) a nest in a nearby conifer, same place as last year.

Sparrowhawks are always taking a gamble when trying to take out bigger birds like jackdaws - similar in size with powerful beaks capable of inflicting great damage. They’re certainly no lightweights.

Interesting. I have only seen our blackbirds being aggressive towards one another. That being said, we haven’t had any blackcaps, and just one song thrush.

I'll try and post a full list a bit later on but birders in Leeds have been going a bit crazy due to the Bohemian waxwings that have turned up. A first for me!

Robin was the first, heard at 2:55am. First bird seen was a carrion crow on my chimney at around 9am not long after I woke up (probably the same one that caws before I put the food out).

Robin, started singing at around 2:55am and still singing intermittently now.

How could I have guessed they'd be the first bird of 2019?

I saw a blackbird like that myna in my garden recently, with head feathers missing. I just assumed mites or stress.
