It occurred to me this morning, as I was retrieving our wheelie bin from the front gate, and saying hello to our resident kingfisher, that I should start a tally of all the bird species I have seen at Coneysthorpe, with a sub-list of those I have heard only.
So here goes from memory:
Blackbird, Song Thrush, Sparrow, Starling, Magpie, Rook, Chaffinch, Plover, Shell duck, Pheasant, Tui, Fantail, Hawk
Kingfisher, Rosella Parrot, Goldfinch
Heard only - Morepork Owl
I'll let you know when I can add to the list!
