    Jackdaw

    Hi guys, not entirely sure where to post this however I’m just looking to see if anyone can help. I know a few of our gardens birds I’ve seen have rings on, I’ve never really thought anything of it as I know sometimes birds are ringed, a few starlings anyways, but there has been a jackdaw coming...

    Unknown bird noise?

    Hi, yes sorry it’s not the best. And I have just listened to the video against the sounds on the internet of a Redshank. No sound was the same however it had that “same tone”. And we do get Redshanks here. I know some birds sounds change a lot. Thank you for your help!

    Bird of prey over my garden in Sevenoaks, Kent UK

    Amazing birds to watch!! Dumfries and Galloway (Scotland) has a Red Kite trail and also a feeding station, and it’s absolutely amazing to see them. They do get fed meat sometimes and I think they hunt a lot of road kill(?). Don’t quote me on that though haha! The giveaway for the kite is the...

    Unknown bird noise?

    Can anyone help with identifying this bird sound? No app is picking it up. And I’m sure I’ve heard it before around a reservoir but I just can’t put my finger on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!! Sarah

    Sparrowhawk

    Thank you. Yeah I think we’re lucky to never have seen pigeon feathers spread out. We have pigeons and doves visit regularly but never witnessed any of the sprawks taking them. I guess little birds are easier.

    Sparrowhawk

    Hi! Thank you, I will start and share my photos, I have many. I’m not a pro photographer but I’m not that bad if I say so myself haha! But yes, I agree, luckily our visitors have trees to hide in. Except during winter, they struggle. But I’m hoping that they will all get through it. Thank you...

    Sparrowhawk

    Oh don’t get me wrong, they are beautiful. We had a young female and male not so long ago, which I’m assuming is from our normal visitors. You’re more than welcome to take our sprawks if you wish 🤣🤣! But no, I know that they have to feed also, and it’s life, but it’s more the case I’m so...

    Sparrowhawk

    Thank you. That’s how I try to look at it, I know the sparrowhawks need to feed also which is why I try block out any noise or such when I know they are in the garden but it’s just so hard. I never said I never liked the sparrowhawks, they’re beautiful birds and I’ve taken many photos of ours...

    Sparrowhawk

    Hi all, genuine question, how do you stop yourself feeling bad for the birds you feed that the sparrowhawk takes? I understand the whole nature part. But when I see obviously birds being swiped and the awful noise, it constantly goes round my head about the bird that it caught, how it feels to...
