Happy New Year!
Polbathic, 1st January:
Hopefully, you’ll be instigating another Garden List for this year; the last one was very enjoyable. If that’s the case, my starting day’s list, from my St. Germans garden bordering Polbathic Creek, in order seen, is:
Mute Swan, Robin, Jackdaw, Rook, Wood Pigeon, Blue Tit, Hedge Sparrow, Cormorant, Herring Gull, Canada Goose, Dabchick, Wren, Siskin, Goldfinch, Little Egret, Blackbird, Stonechat, Snipe, Chaffinch, Carrion Crow,
Pheasant, Black headed Gull, Pied Wagtail, Mallard, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Redshank, Great Tit, Coal Tit, Curlew, Treecreeper (the first we’ve had for years!) Also Bar-headed Goose (still with Canadas) … (A Blonden)
Crowlas, 2nd January: 20 species up to the second if having an annual garden list? I had a Firecrest yesterday, a first for our garden (G Healey)
