Very late to the party I know...... but I have been enjoying reading this thread, this morning and marvelling about the birds that you all get to see or hear from your gardens, all over the world.
I have just read the January postings and found myself wondering how often Ken gets to see or hear Lesser Spotted Woodpecker from his and the sorts of habitats that are encompassed in dantheman's six acres ?
I have also very much enjoyed seeing the photographs that people have posted of what they see - fascinating....
Also what people's garden patches look like.
I am currently lodging in a very crowded housing estate, so have to be very careful where I point my bins !
Over breakfast this morning I have been watching:
1) House Sparrow, male
Z) Blackbird, male- fiesty
3) 3 amorous feral pigs -apologies Halftwo
4) Male goldfinch
I am not expecting to get beyond 20 here where I am living, but will enjoy the looking and, much more reading about what everyone else is seeing.
Best regards, Carol
