Happy New Year 2019.

My first bird of the new year was an early morning (5.30am) Blackbird in my garden! Woodpigeon, Dunnock, Robin, Bullfinch, Great Tit, Coal Tit, Blue Tit, Carrion Crow, Jackdaw and Magpie were the later arrivals.

An hour spent at Brake Mill Pool this afternoon added a few more bird species to my list, they being, Grey Heron, Mallard, Canada Goose, Mute Swan, Coot and Black Headed Gull.

Not a great number of species but it's a start and it was good to be outdoors on a walk.


  1. My neighbour has put a couple of feeders out, I'll have to see what visits!

    1. I shall look forward to reading of your sightings!
