British Birds

My personal list of photographed birds now stands at 112, as of 3rd October 2017, with Crane, Treecreeper, Greenshank, and Dunlin added this year. Recently also added Great White Egret, Red-legged Partridge, Merlin, Long-eared owl, and others. Rather chuffed to add Peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus), and then Hawfinch. Redpoll in the garden brings total to 133 as of 13th February 2018.
