RSPB Garden Birdwatch Lakeside Llandod

(via Llandodpete) Siskins, bullfinch, coaltit, bluetit, great tits, marsh tits, Goldcrest, LTTits, magpies, collard doves, nuthatch, jay, buzzard, pheasant, starling, chaffinch, greenfinch, crows, kite, reed bunting.

Great day on Saturday for the “bird watch” noted 20 species of birds including my favourite Goldcrest. Surprised to see a Buzzard land in the tree at the bottom of the garden but I think he was taking shelter from the Crows. The one bird I did miss was the Redpolls and the LTTits were in and out very quickly (I think it was too busy for them) but you can’t have everything in one hour can you!
