Busy with birds in the garden over the last week

With all the recent bad weather the garden has been busy with the regular bird visitors.  There has also been a few unusual birds as well.  Over the last few days I’ve kept a record of the number of birds visiting each day.  Although there has been 30 species I still can’t beat my day record of 25 🙁  Still, it’s nice to see such a great variety.  Here’s a list of all I’ve seen:

1. Redwing, 2. ‎Ring-necked Parakeet, 3. ‎Bullfinch, 4. ‎Goldfinch, 5. ‎Jay, 6. ‎Robin, 7. ‎Dunnock, 8. ‎Coal Tit, 9. ‎Brambling, 10. ‎Great Tit, 11. ‎Siskin, 12. ‎Blackbird, 13. ‎Wood Pigeon, 14. ‎Red Kite overhead, 15. ‎Chaffinch, 16. ‎Blue Tit, 17. ‎Black-headed Gull, 18. ‎Goldcrest, 19. ‎Magpie, 20. ‎Stock Dove, 21. ‎Crow, 22. ‎House Sparrow, 23. ‎Blackcap, 24. ‎Rook, 25. ‎Greenfinch, 26 Nuthatch, 27 Jackdaw, 28 Great Spotted Woodpecker, 29 Reed Bunting, 30 Starling

Things should start changing now as the weather improves and breeding becomes important.

Here are a few shots that I’ve managed over the past week or so.
