479 Birds

Out for a fairly short walk today, that took in the waterfront. There was a small group of starlings putting on a a bit of a show. I wanted to try and get a mini murmuration, but they were too fast. Still I managed to get this one mid-flap. They are always a delight to watch.

Back at home, the grey wagtail is once again a regular;

This little bird is an absolute delight to watch. Permanently bobbing, it dashes in for a peck, and dashes back. We love watching it. It normally doesn’t take long after I top up the food for the birds to arrive, This morning, I counted thirteen pigeons. Only one had managed to get on to the bird table, and one has worked out how to get at one of the hanging feeders. The starling had dived on the table in very respectable numbers, and seemed to be too busy eating to squabble. There was another group on the ground, along with the small birds, and apart from the hanging feeder being attacked by the pigeon, the sparrows were at all of the remaining feeders. I can’t tell you how pleased I am at all of this.

It’s not that I’m a real bird watcher (ornithologist in the sense that I need to know every type of bird, every so often I see a bird and wonder what it is. That’s how I learned about two of the different sparrows we get in the garden.

Really nice to see.
