BRITISH ~ GARDEN ~ BIRDS ๐Ÿงก BRIAN ๐Ÿค ANGELA ๐Ÿ’™ A EULOGY



WHEN WE TRAVEL TO EUROPE ~ We never seem to see as many BIRDS as we see in England.  Every year (on specific days) we have a nationwide Garden Bird Count. In January 2020 over 1.3 million birds were spotted and recorded. The Poem (list) shows the most Common Birds (number in parentheses) spotted. Most of them are seen in the video.  

The 10 most common Birds seen in UK Gardens on a Day in January 2020

TITS (6)  The cheeky Blue Tit is our favourite.

SPARROWS (5)  Cheerful fearless and regular visitors

STARLINGS (3)  Live up to their name. Can be pushy for food !

PIGEONS (3)  Beautiful Birds with a nice sound !

BLACKBIRDS (2)  Can be aggressive like the SS. Scare the smaller Birds

GOLDFINCH (2)  Immaculate Birds - Elegant in the Snow

ROBIN (2)  Most popular Birds. We have them nesting in our Birdbox !

MAGPIE (1)  Love shiny things - They help themselves !

CHAFFINCH (1)  Cheerful Birds - Lovely song.

DOVE (1)  Harbinger of Peace - Elegant & welcome in any Garden. 

 

Thanks for visiting comments welcome ~ Love ANGELA & BRIAN XOX

 

Both of our Parents have Gardens which are Bird & Wildlife friendly. In our House - outside the French Window - we have a Patio then a Pond. Brian has installed a small electric pump to keep the water aerated. There is a bush beside the pond on which we hang fat balls and  bags of nuts for the Birds. There is also  Birdtable and two Birdbaths. We can sit & watch the Birds (as listed above) coming for a drink and a wash. We also get a lot of Seagulls (who give a wonderful acrobatic air display) when we put out food ! The bird boxes came with the House and one of them has a Family of Robins. Nature lifts all our Spirits in these very sad days.

        Thanks for the post. Not many people know about birds that well, because only those who are very interested in something would go deeper like knowing the different types, species and more details about it. Otherwise, it would be just some common bird names and that's it.

          Thanks JOKER ~ pleased you enjoyed our Post. In the UK we are taught to reconise birds even before we could talk. We called them tweet~tweets ! We all had birdbaths & birdtables in our gardens. In School & the Scouts / Guides we were encouraged to recognise Birds by their Appearance & Song. Some of our friends are TWITCHERS ~ Bird watching Fanantics ~ who travel all over the World to photograph UNIQUE BIRDS ~ AMEN

          Blessings & Peace to YOU & YOURS
          Love Brian & Angela ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›

          Pity I didn't take part or the Nuthatch might be up there with them. Thanks for posting.

            Thnaks for comment Unce Mike ! My results only go up to 20 but the NUTHATCH is not in it ~ neither is the SEAGULL. I guess it depends where one is in the UK. We dont get many Ospreys or Eagles in Essex !

            Blessings & Peace to You &Yours
            LOVE Brian & Angela ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›
