GUEST,Mandoleer BS: Birdwatching Challenge (382* d) RE: BS: Birdwatching Challenge 26 Mar 06


Only just caught up with this thread. List for this year so far from Sunny Southport suburb:
Robin
Wren (noisy little sod)
Greenfinch
Thrush
Blackbird
Long-tailed Tit
Coal Tit
Blue Tit
Great Tit
Starling (one only - flocks of thousands a couple of roads away)
Herring Gull
Black-headed gull
Woodpigeon
Collared Dove
Magpie
Hedge Sparrow (OK, you may call it a dunnock. I don't.)
Tawny owl (heard)
Pinkfooted Goose (seasonal visitor - should be going soon)
Oystercatcher
The last two are a bit unusual for a suburban semi-detached, but I'm under the commuter route for the geese and the oystercatchers. Haven't had a house sparrow for years, but they're in the next road. Goldfinches are found over the road, but not in my place.
As to squirrels, I had a red in the spring and a grey late summer. I got a live trap from the Red Alert people but couldn't get the beggar. Wrecked one of my feeders. (I'm in a Red Squirrel area so trapping and removing is a local activity where greys are concerned.)
