In An English Country Garden

THE house where I grew up has a good many trees - perfect for bird life. Now we are learning a little bit about bird identification in the Southern US, we had already decided that while visiting my parents, we would get a field guide for UK birds. But Emma's Grandma took this one step further with a wonderful sticker book, and Emma took great delight in recording birds she saw with a sticker and a date. Here are some of the birds we spotted in the back garden, and while tooling around town and country roads, roughly in order of frequency:
  • black bird
  • wood pigeon
  • crow
  • magpie
  • blue tit
  • robin
  • thrush
  • great tit
  • wren
  • pied wagtail
