I couldn’t believe how windy it was here, I saw very few small birds at all today, and only heard a blue tit briefly, hope Spring starts properly soon!
My garden bird list for today, and I was outside a lot, although windy it was pretty sunny in the afternoon:
- Blue Tit x 1 – heard only
- Dunnock x 2
- Greenfinch x 1
Not in my garden, but on a walk around Corstorphine Edinburgh:
- Jackdaw x 6
- Magpie x 1 – collecting nesting material
- Rook x 1
- Starlings x 2
- Woodpigeon x 1
If you happen to be in Edinburgh over the next few days/week The Royal Yacht is celebrating her 60th birthday, even for non-royal fans it’s worth having a look, I wasn’t sure when I went, but the engine room is a great museum piece and the tearoom is lovely, also at this time of year there’s often Eiders off the side, as well as a few different divers, shags and cormorants. Find out more about the 60th birthday here: 60 years of Britannia.
