Blue tits, great tits, green finches, blackbird, robin, magpies, wood pigeon in mine in sleety south east London, not that I had long to look.
I've never listed the visitors we get so I'll give it a go now .... the above obviously and ....
... long-tailed tits, coal tits, wrens, dunnocks, starlings, mistle thrushes, blackcap (only ever twice - once this spring and then just a week ago), goldfinch (once, excitingly the week after I put up a niger feeder about three years ago - but never again!!), gr spotted woodpecker (twice recently on peanuts), green woodpecker (once), plenty of swifts above in the summer - and on one occaison a buzzard, pair of goldcrests (once, a couple of years ago), female chaffinch (but not for a couple of years).
I know there are goldfinches around the area and will have quite a few teasels flowering in the garden this year, so hopefully that will attract some (but nobody told me teasels were biennial, half of them probably got weeded out this year!)
BY the way one of the greenfinches feeding on the sunflower seeds a couple of weeks ago had a circle of bright greeny-yellow around its eye. Saw it twice. Anyone know if that was likely to be just an aberration or some less common variant I saw?
Todays update as yesterday but not quite as busy but add a Mistle thrush which my wife had seen previously but my first time. In the front garden a Goldcrest and female Bullfinch. I also had a Sparrowhawk fly past the front window. I think I will take holidays at home more often
i live next to an orchard and its brilliant for birds,we get;feildfairs,lapwing,crows,buzzards,jays,magpies and i even saw a sparrow hawk take a sparrow from our bird tablei also see my chicken eating our plants
Got home in time today to watch the feeder and had a good show. Lots of cardinals, sparrows,finches, 2 downy woodpeckers, and a bluejay. It was very busy and then some kind of hawk passed through and it was real still for 45min to an hour.
A Great Spotted Woodpecker visited our garden at least three times today plus at least a dozen Goldfinch. Up until a couple of weeks ago a Goldfinch would have been a new garden tick but one turned up and became an ever present on one of the Sunflower Hearts feeders. It was a nice suprise to see him joined by those other Goldfinch.
The Blue Tit numbers are huge in the garden, plus there are also large numbers of Great Tit and Greenfinch. We counted at least 8 Blackbird in the garden at the same time and the Dunnock numbers also seem to be up as we counted at least five around the one Feeder station and a few more at the other station.
Not many Chaffinch but there are at least three Robin vying for the food. All in all a satisfying number of birds visiting our garden at the moment and I find that I am having to fill the Sunflower Hearts feeders on a daily basis.
Not large number of species today, just good numbers.
