There are many birds the casual observer can expect to see in their garden. Most common are starlings, house sparrows, blackbirds, blue and great tits, robins, greenfinches and collared doves.
In many gardens dunnocks, song thrushes and chaffinches will hop around on the ground below the bird tableIn wooded areas you may be lucky enough to see great spotted woodpeckers, nuthatches and coal, marsh and long-tailed tits. Look out for blackcaps, too – they are becoming regular visitors to some bird tables in winter.
Thrushes will visit your garden if they have fruit and berries to eat. These include fieldfares, redwings, plus resident mistle and song thrushes and blackbirds.
