Red kites which are impressive when they swoop down for food.

At our house we get very few - mainly due to our cats, but a short walk away by the fields, there loads of birds, large and small.

Lots of birds here. The usual garden ones, and too many trees, I've noticed there's fewer if no birds where there aren't trees. We get greenfinch, finches, sparrows, don't know all of them. Can be a nuisance in the summer when the chattering and singing starts at dawn.

I have never seen so many fat old birds as recently, perhaps they love the Maccy junk.

Sparrows love my Hawthorn hedges and sometimes it looks like they are having a party. Occasionally I see a great tit and often blue tits, coal tits, a robin or two.

Then I am glad Mr & Mrs Woodpigeon stopped using the birdfeeder like their local McDonalds, but now I have trapeze artist Magpies competing with the sparrows instead.

I have trouble identifying Dunnocks which are very like a sparrow, but when my partner could stay, he knows them all and taught me a lot.

Because I live near the River Mersey I get a few Herring Gulls, and Sale Water Park attracts Herons and Cormorants but only flying over. Walking around the river area there are also a lot of parakeets which always sounds a bit alien.

I saw a heron flying over the park when walking Fearn and Monty, they look and sound really prehistoric.

When you see Heron in water, it motionless.
We get Egret, some people think they Herons too.
Heron nesting site nearby, it protected area.

I have a pair of robins, blue tits, long tailed tits, ring necked doves, pigeons, magpies and the occasional blackbird and this year quite a few sparrows. I forgot for the first time I have had a woodpecker too. My biggest bird this year was a partridge. It must be the change of fat balls that have attracted the different species.
