Thread Name: BS: Birdwatching
Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching
I'm not a twitcher but I do enjoy watching birds. A dozen wood pigeons are working over my garden as I type. I holidayed on Alderney for many years and I would watch gannets diving for food for hours. I'm lucky to live in a quite heavily wooded area so the garden gets a good variety, a friend who is a BTO ringer often uses our garden. Our strangest visitor was an African grey parrot escaped from a neighbour! We also got some escaped zebra finches one year and I often see the famous Surrey ring necked cockatoos in woods around here.
