Birds (as in πŸ¦…πŸ§πŸ•ŠπŸ¦†πŸ¦’πŸ¦‰πŸ¦©πŸ¦šπŸ¦œπŸ” etc, not the user @birds)

Yeah, I used to work down there and often ate lunch in the park. My birding concerns were more about keeping them away from my food at the time though! I’d been walking through and running in Finsbury Park for years before lockdown and was largely oblivious to all that was going on, the diversity of birds really surprised me once I started paying attention.

Only been bothered once when I was down there. I was minding my own business on a bench and a greylag goose just strolled towards me and pecked me on the knee.

Used to walk through St James’s Park on the way to work in the mornings. Enjoyed seeing the cygnets grow up through spring.

This wasnt true, It was actually under some junk mail that I’d just kicked to the side in the hall. Sorry rspb

It’s OK. The website was so crocked on the day I think I accidentally submitted my results about five times to compensate for yours.

Three goldfinches perched on the bush outside my window blowing raspberries at each other next to our feeder :smiley:

Built the Robins a wonky birdhouse.

Looking forward to scowling and judging the local wildlife from my kitchen window for ignoring my gracious hospitality.

Pretty disappointing day really. Couple of new visitors to the garden (coal and long tail tits). Nothing really happening on a little wander around Mottisfont (maybe a bullfinch, but too far way to make a real positive id). Then went out for a 4 mile walk around the local nature reserve and saw sweet FA except great and blue tits and wrens (possibly a siskin, but too far away for a positive id again). Best I got was this jay about 100m from home.

Used to walk this all the time circa 2001. Good spot for kingfishers

Ooh yes! Don’t see them often but only place I’ve ever seen them

When I went out to get my bike from the shed today I heard a load of noise in the trees above me, looked up and was surprised to see four jays all squawking at each other.
