Birds, Birds, Birds

Did you take part in the bird count at the weekend? If you did we would love to hear how many birds you counted. Sometimes it can be really difficult to identify birds, did you manage? Some birds have really distinctive features like the red tummy of a Robin, or a blue head and yellow tummy of a blue tit. The RSPB kindly sent the nursery a great bird identification chart with lots of pictures of birds, maybe you could use this to help identify the birds that you see.

  1. We have seen robins, blackbirds, magpies, wood pigeons and tits in our garden. We particularly love the Bullfinch with his bright pink chest!

    • Gosh you see lots of different birds in your garden, I don’t think I have ever seen a Bullfinch. I really like the blackbirds that visit our garden.
