  • Red Knot
    The adult Red Knot has short dark legs and a medium thin dark bill. Their body is mottled gray on top with a reddish face, throat and breast. In the winter it is pale gray all over. <br/><br/> There are 6 subspecies of the knot, one of which is severely endangered. The American subspecies has been predicted to be extinct as early as 2010 due to overfishing of their primary food source  the horseshoe crab in the Delaware Bay, a primary stopover point for this migrating bird. <br/><br/> This bird visits the UK shores in the winter, migrating south to Africa, and the areas surrounding Australia. <br/><br/>

  • Goldcrest Fledgling
    The Goldcrest has the pride of place as Europes smallest bird, weighing as little as 5 grams. This member of the kinglet family is very similar to the Firecrest, but with its plainer face makes it pretty easy to distinguish between the two. </br></br> This bird is partially migratory, but this bird does stay year-round here in the UK. You can typically find this bird with flocks of tits in the winter months.

  • Song Thrush
    A familiar and popular garden songbird whose numbers are declining seriously, especially on farmland making it a Red List species. Smaller and browner than a mistle thrush with smaller spotting. Its habit of repeating song phrases distinguish it from singing blackbirds. It likes to eat snails which it breaks into by smashing them against a stone with a flick of the head.

  • European Kestrel
    A familiar sight with its pointed wings and long tail, hovering beside a roadside verge. Numbers of kestrels declined in the 1970s, probably as a result of changes in farming and so it is included on the Amber List. They have adapted readily to man-made environments and can survive right in the centre of cities.
