  • Garden Warbler
    A very plain warbler with no distinguishing features (a feature in itself!). It spends a lot of its time in the cover of trees and bushes and can be more difficult to see than its relative, the blackcap. Despite its name it is not really a garden bird, except in mature gardens next to woods. Its song is similar to that of a blackcap, but has longer mellow phrases.

  • Crested Screamer
    The Southern Screamer, also known as the Crested Screamer, is found in the swamps, estuaries and pools of South America.  These birds are monogamous, mating for life, which can be up to 15 yrs.  The chicks of these birds leave the nest as soon as they hatch, but the parents will take care of them during the fledging period.  This bird is non-migratory despite being an excellent flier.

  • Great Cormorant
    A large and conspicuous waterbird, the cormorant has an almost primitive appearance with its long neck making it appear almost reptilian. It is often seen standing with its wings held out to dry. Regarded by some as black, sinister and greedy, cormorants are supreme fishers which can bring them into conflict with anglers and they have been persecuted in the past. The UK holds internationally important wintering numbers.
