Sorry (and me as a BF mod) taking this thread off topic, I apologize.

Back on topic: I have not seen a "new" bird in yard since the Northern Flicker!

New to forum

Just like to say hello, looking forward to a interesting few months in UK (Worcestershire) with the incredibly mild winter weather and frequent storms, off to see if I can catch a glimpse of a hoopoe spotted close by.

Sounds like your new location is an interesting one Josh, what's the habitat around and about like there?

Two locally common ones finally graced us with a visit today:

29 Goldfinch
30 Mistle Thrush


Wild and windy with snow forecast, perhaps some bad weather movements will result

Yea, it is! I am enjoying it here. Still not sure if it will be as good as my previous yard was. But, we shall see! I think we have more habitat here which is a good thing. Well.. we have a nice stream that runs through the property. There is a field behind our house with a large wooded area beyond the field. And across the road we have more fields and forest. Most of our trees here are deciduous with small amounts of coniferous mixed in.

Attached are a few photos, so you can get an idea of how my scenery looks in the summer months.

Looks like you have a good mix of habitat for the possibility of plenty of bird species.
Good Birding!

Serious snow coming down now, looking to be quite good over the next few days. As many as five or six White-backed Woodpeckers using the feeders now, quite impressive.

I think people with more than half a hectare of land should be banned from this thread - that's not gardens within the normal meaning!

I would assume you are referring to me. I think 2 hectare (5 acres) is fair (considering I am sacrificing a lot of land ). That is about what I am counting now for my yard list on here.

Nutty is being a cheeky monkey Josh, we're all jealous of you and Jos, but size isn't everything , my garden at Selsey was tiny, but thanks to my 'scope and a view of the sea I achieved a total of 125 after 16 years peering out of the garden

Mine's less than a hundred square feet, about as far inland you can get, a few hundred feet up towards the moors - but does have a view out along and across the small valley.
