  • Meadow Pipit
    A small, brown, streaky bird, it is the commonest songbird in upland areas and its high, piping call is a familiar sound. In flight it shows white outer tail feathers and in the breeding season it has a fluttering parachute display flight. In winter they are quite gregarious and gather in small flocks, often invisible among the vegetation, suddenly flying up with typical jerky flight. Meadow pipit numbers in the UK have been declining since the mid 1970s, resulting in this species being included on the amber list of conservation concern.

  • Chaffinch
    The Chaffinch is a widespread finch across Europe, Asia, and northwestern Africa, being the most populous finch in western Europe.  It can be said it is one of europe's prettiest finches, with a loud and varied song to match.  The Chaffinch is not migratory here in Britain, and in the winter it will form loose flocks, sometimes quite large.  They are also known to mix with the visiting Bramblings during the winter as well.
  • Tufted Duck - eclipse
    The Tufted duck is a year-round resident here in the UK, and in winter we're also home to many migrants from further north.  This diving duck has an estimated worldwide population of over a million birds, spread throughout much of eurasia.  This bird in the winter months can also be found on the east coast of North America. </br></br>  The only other similar bird is the Ring-necked duck in North America.

  • Yellow Wagtail
    The yellow wagtail is a small, graceful, yellow and green bird, with a medium-length tail and slender black legs. It spends much time walking or running on the ground. As its name implies, it wags its tail from time to time.It is a summer visitor, migrating to winter in Africa. It breeds in a variety of habitats in the UK, including arable farmland, wet pastures and upland hay meadows. Serious declines in breeding numbers accross all of these habitats place the yellow wagtail on the red list of birds of conservation concern.

  • Mellers Duck
    The Mellers Duck is a dabbling duck endemic to eastern Madagascar.  Although there was a population established on Mauritius back in the 18th Century, this population due to competition with feral duck populations and habitat loss is nearly extinct.</br></br>This duck is on the endangered classification due to huge recent habitat destruction, causing many birds, including this one, to have a massive decline in numbers.  And although this bird will breed readily given the right conditions, because of it being near in looks to the female mallard, and at that considered a rather drab duck, very little has been done to preserve this duck.
