Bird list

We thought that the blog was a good way of recording the birds that visit and fly over our patch.  Here are the birds we have seen in or from the yard since moving in 7 years ago.  Each year we seem to have more and more variety as the garden matures and the native plants get bigger and flower more. # denotes introduced
