Twitter Weekly Updates for 2009-11-08

I have seen a lot of birds in my garden and think it has become a safe haven to some of the birds that visit.  A lot of garden birds use the feeders every day, other birds just walk through on their way to the farm pond, some gather at the edge of the pond – different species of birds enjoying the water together.

Here’s a list –

  • House Sparrows
  • Tree Sparrows
  • Woodpeckers
  • Tawny Owl – He was ill and resting in a corner of the garden
  • Pigeons
  • Doves
  • Cucko0s
  • Chaffinches 
  • Robins
  • Wrens
  • Dunnocks
  • Thrushes
  • Blackbirds
  • Sparrowhawks
  • Blue Tits
  • Great Tits
  • Coal Tits
  • Pheasants
  • Moorhens
  • Ducks -on the  garden pond
  • Rooks – We have a rookery nearby
  • Crows
  • Ravens – very shiny black and confident
  • Jackdaws
  • Finches

Flying over the garden we have

  • Swifts
  • Swallows
  • Barn Owls – They can be seen round and about, but have not yet used the barn owl box we put up a few years ago
  • Wild Geese – they can be heard as well as seen.  Their calls as they fly over on a dark night sometimes fill the night air.

In The Fields Round About

  • Skylarks
  • Barn Owls
  • lapwings
  • Pheasants
  • Partridges
  • Groups of birds seem to settle in the fields sometimes  – cannot see what birds they are

There must be some I have missed and I don’t not know the differences between the types of finches, but I sometimes think there are more birds in this area than there are people!
