Rook or crow

This bird is collecting nesting material, unfortunately it has found a piece of plastic to line it's nest with, not very good.

Long tailed tit

Another bird collecting nesting material, hopefully they are bird feathers. Did you know that long tailed tits use spiderweb to strengthen their nest with? How clever.

Who said magpies are black and white, look closer and you will see some blue are well.

Red Wing

The song thrush and the red wing belong to the Thrush family, but look at this Red wing he can't look any different, especially his face as if it has eyebrows

Have you got any idea what type of bird this is? Have a closer look.

Well it is a bird of prey having lunch

But what bird of prey is it?

Still image for this video
Have you noticed it is eating it's prey on the ground and not flying off with it. It looks quite protective over it, have a look around to see it doesn't get stolen.

It's a Sparrow Hawk

Well our cameras also spotted some birds recently. Especially after the snow some birds were thirsty and needed a wash, what joy they had in all the puddles that were everywhere. At least 9 different bird species have visited, even a winter migrant (bird that comes to a warmer climate to over-winter) the Redwing (see photo). Where do you think a Redwing normally lives?

The birds that we have seen on the cameras are: Great Tit, Redwing, Blackbird, Magpie, Wren, Chaffinch, Wood pigeon, Robin and even a Tree Creeper, can you spot them? Do you know what some of these birds eat?
