A veritable feast of feathered friends
Date Published: 21/01/2009
Obviously ‘feast’ in the non-capturing and eating sense!
Anyway, here’s the list of what’s been seen at Organic Farmers & Growers HQ (also known as The Old Estate Yard):
- Blue tit
- Great tit
- House Sparrow
- Greater Spotted Woodpecker
- Coal tit
- House Martin
- Pied Wagtail
- Red Legged Partridge
- Long tailed tit
- Collared Dove
A buzzard has also been seen in the vicinity, though unsurprisingly not dining from our facilities.
In a very responsible way, Certification Officer Katie Owens (who shall hence be known as ‘Twitcher-in-Chief’ – because she’s the one with the binoculars), has recorded the sightings on the British Trust for Ornithology Bird Atlas.
If any of our bird-related shenanigans today have whetted your appetite there’s a great way to get involved this weekend with the RSPBs’ annual Big Garden Birdwatch. And you can get even deeper into the action by following, and contributing to, the tweet-by-tweet account of the day from The Guardian.
Right; that’s enough about birdwatching for a while.
