    England lockdown policy

    Hi all, I can only agree with those who err on the side of caution. I am teacher, in the West Midlands, in charge of Year 8. Just in that year group, there have been 8 deaths of parents/grandparents - they are only 12 years old - it is a tragedy.

    Goose, Birmingham UK, today.

    Hi all, Is this just a Canada hybrid? It was significantly larger, with orange/pink beak with a white stripe above. The cheek patches were also more pronounced and slightly pinkish.

    Trittiford mill pond and the dingles bird sightings

    Got a great sighting of the Bar-headed goose today :) There was also this: larger than a Canada goose, with a pinky orange bill with a white stripe above. Is it just a Canada hybrid? I’ll post it on the ID forum as well.

    Swan in yard

    Hi I am no swan expert, but it will almost certainly not have enough room to fly out - they need a long “run up”. I would contact the RSPCA and let them handle it !

    Thank you & Species Update :)

    Keep a look out for the robins. They are one of the few birds in the UK which defend territories all year round, males and females, but not as a pair in winter. See if they have decided your garden is worth defending and if they have two different territories :)
