Hi there from UK (1 Viewer)


Hi :)

I am an absolute newbie to bird watching....or bird identifying. I started off a few weeks ago, using watching the birds in my garden as a mindfulness exercise. I was stunned at the life going on in my garden that I had not paid attention to before!
We don't have any unusual birds....house sparrow, blackbirds, magpies, crows and pigeons but they are so lovely to watch and listen to. I watched the blackbirds protect their babies from a magpie and discovered that the sparrows live net door! The pigeons have been visitors for many years.

I am trying to increase my knowledge. Recently I became aware of some swifts nearby which was nice because the RSPB were looking for people to report sightings.

Today, I am pretty sure it was a swallow I saw but my bird identifier doesn't seem to like that it was coastland that I saw it!
