  • Dunlin
    Dunlins in breeding plumage have a roufus coloration on top, with a distinctive black belly which no similar-sized wader possesses, making it stand out amongst other waders.  In the winter they’re a drab gray on top and white underneath.  Both legs and their slightly curved bill are black.  This bird can easily be confused (in autumn in particular) with the curlew sandpiper, as the bills of dunlin can be quite long and quite curved. <br/><br/> According to the BTO website, 3 subspecies visit our shores.  The subspecies schinzii breed here but travel to Africa for the winter.  Birds from western Siberia winter here, and occasionally small numbers of Greenland breeders pass through in autumn on their way to Africa.

  • Little Egret
    Until the 1950s, the little egret was restricted to southern europe.  Gradually it has started to move north, and finally started breeding in the UK in the late 20th century.  This is an all-white bird with a dark bill, dark legs and yellow feet.  In the breeding season you will see the skin on the face become red or blue.  Juveniles are similar but have duller legs and feet than the non-breeding adults.

  • Bullfinch
    A finch usually located by its sad tones, the bullfinch is best looked for at woodland edges.  It has in the past been considered a pest in orchards as it favours eating buds off the trees.  But due to recent declines in numbers, this is no longer strictly the case.</br>  It's a mainly resident bird in its breeding range, with some of these birds moving a bit further south in the winter.  They are resident in the UK year round.  You will also find this bird in europe and the temperate regions of asia.

  • Blue Tit
    The Blue Tit is a popular garden visitor here in the UK, with vivid yellow, green and blue colors, making it easily recognized.  It's also usually the first to be attracted to feeders as they'll come readily to any nut feeder placed in a suitable spot.  In the winter they flock with other varieties of tits.  These do not migrate here in the UK, being here all year round.
