The start of a list

A neighbour ended 2014 with a list of 91 bird species seen on their land.

On our day visit yesterday our land was visited, among others things, by:

  • A goldcrest jithering round in a small conifer directly outside the house
  • A buzzard quartering low over the vegetable patch wondering if the mice had moved out with the previous owners and dreaming of guinea pigs
  • Two hen pheasants strutting through our wood
  • Either one robin with the skill of popping up within a few feet of every location I was active, or a team working together.
