"my" regular Long Tailed Tits arrived five minutes after my GBW hour! Best bird was a Bullfinch. A meagre ten species with a total of only 17 birds. City life!
But..just a half a mile run from my front door, a pair of Stonechat this morning.
As for Dunnock--in my garden I've had three on rare occasion. I refer to singular Dunnocks as "a Dunnock"..it makes me smile when people refer to "the" Cuckoo etc. I suppose if something is a scarcity then one would say (for example) that "The Bluethroat" is still in such and such place....

A female pheasant has just wandered across our front garden. I’ve seen them when I have run over the Kingston Gorse & the Goring Gap, but never in our front garden.

I think I will have to have my camera on permanent standby.

Another sighting of a treecreeper in my front garden. I get one occasionally. Always a welcome visitor.

Cheating slightly but a visit to Cape Town got me a few nice (even if not particularly special) birds. Hadeda, Sacred Ibis, Cape Eagle Owl (relying on a friend for ID as all I really saw was a dark shadow), Cape Spurfowl (which I used to know as a Francolin), Orange breasted sunbird, Cape Robin, Redwinged starling (which shat on my sister’s arm!), helmeted guineafowl, black oystercatcher, African penguin (heard only)

Got something to say?
