  • 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/>

  • Great Crested Grebe
    The Great-Crested Grebe is an excellent swimmer and diver, the young able to do so almost immediately after hatching. The adults are unmistakable in summer with bright rusty colors on their head and neck. The hatchlings are striped black and white, much like a zebra. It is the largest grebe in europe.The species was almost hunted to extinction in the 19th century, but thanks to the RSPB, it is now a common sight.

  • Eurasian Siskin
    The eurasian siskin is a small finch, easily identified by its vividly yellow colors. It has a distinctly forked tail and a long narrow finch bill. </br></br>It is mainly resident from southern England to northern Scotland, but in larger numbers in Scotland and Wales. You can see this bird in much of the UK, but for England, where it becomes more common in winter.  We also get  birds arriving here from Europe. Look for these at the tops of trees in suitable habitat, more readily found in Scotland and Wales, where they are fairly common. </br>

  • Stonechat
    Stonechats are european robin sized birds. Males have striking black heads with white around the side of their neck, orange-red breasts and a mottled brown back. Females lack the males black head, but have brown backs and an orange tinge to their chests. Birds are frequently seen flicking their wings while perched, often doing so on the tops of low bushes. As its name suggests, birds utter a sharp loud call that sound like two stones being tapped together. <br/>They breed in western and southern parts of the UK, but disperse more widely in winter. Although the species is not faring too badly in the UK, it is doing less well on the continent and is of European conservation concern, making it an Amber List species. -rspb

  • 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.
