This began life as a catalogue of birds that visited our garden but, as I hope you will agree, that seemed to be missing out on some more interesting feathered friends. So, it’s grown. I don’t like shots of birds on feeders but I like missing out on a species even less, so some inevitably remain of those birds that that do visit our garden.
To the untrained eye (and that includes mine), the order here may seem more or less random. However, on the rash assumption that I’ve sorted them correctly, my sequence basically follows the sequencing within the Collins Bird Guide.
