Had one other trip so far in March, to Brussels, which meant I could get a new country list going, as I have no formal list for Belgium (only a note of watching Common Tern diving for fish behind a ferry as I arrived into Zeebrugge 15 years ago or so!!). So, all these species are "new for Belgium"!

At Brussels Airport:
1. Feral pigeon
2. Carrion crow
3. Woodpigeon

In Brussels:
4. Wren
5. House sparrow
6. Magpie
7. Mallard
8. Egyptian goose
9. Moorhen
10. Coot
11. Canada goose
12. Black-headed gull

In the Anderlecht suburb:
13. Goldcrest

Back at BRU airport:
14. Kestrel
15. Collared dove
16. Starling
17. Greenfinch
18. Blackbird
19. Blue tit
20. Grey heron
