Garden Birds – 2013

Ornithological visitors to my garden in 2013 – that I could remember …


  • House Sparrow Passer domesticus
  • Blue Tit Cyanistes caeruleus
  • Great Tit Parus major
  • Common Chaffinch Fringilla coelebs
  • European Robin Erithacus rubecula
  • Eurasian Wren Troglodytes troglodytes
  • Common Blackbird Turdus merula
  • Song Thrush Turdus philomelos
  • Common Starling Sturnus vulgaris
  • Eurasian Collared Dove Streptopelia decaocto
  • Common Wood Pigeon Columba palumbus
  • Eurasian Magpie Pica pica
  • Rook Corvus frugilegus Clearly not a Rook. Tis a Jackdaw.
  • Western Jackdaw Corvus monedula
  • European Green Woodpecker Picus viridis
  • Great Spotted Woodpecker Dendrocopos major
  • Common Pheasant Phasianus colchicus
  • European Herring Gull Larus argentatus (Never fed in the garden, but present overhead due to proximity of rubbish dump just over half a mile away – which sounds worse than it actually is.)
