After many happy weekends birdwatching when we lived in Devon I’m really getting back into it again now.

Last year I started record keeping again, and this year is no different – except I seem to be seeing more species.

So here’s a question for you.

What is the most exciting bird in this photo?

No, it isn’t the Pelican!

Way up on the skyline a Peregrine Falcon sits towards the top of the dead tree.

I can only count wild birds on my list, and the WWT Arundel site we called on last Sunday served up for “new” species for my 2022 list.

Here’s what I’ve seen in January.

Avocet, Bittern, Blackbird, Black Headed Gull, Black Tailed Godwit, Blue Tit, Brent Geese, Bullfinch, Buzzard, Canada Geese, Chaffinch, Coal Tit, Collared Dove, Common Gull, Coot, Cormorant, Crow, Curlew, Dunlin, Dunnock, Egyptian Geese, Fieldfare, Gadwall, Goldcrest, Goldeneye, Goldfinch, Golden Plover, Great Black Backed Gull, Great Crested Grebe, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Great Tit, Greenfinch, Greenshank, Greylag Geese, Grey Heron, Herring Gull, House Sparrow, Jackdaw, Jay, Kestrel, Kingfisher, Lapwing, Lesser Black Backed Gull, Little Egret, Little Grebe, Long Tailed Tit, Magpie, Mallard, Marsh Tit, Mistle Thrush, Moorhen, Mute Swan, Nuthatch, Oystercatcher, Peregrine Falcon, Pheasant, Pied Wagtail, Pintail, Pochard, Raven, Redwing, Red Kite, Redshank, Red Breasted Merganser, Reed Warbler, Ringed Plover, Robin, Rook, Shelduck, Shoveler, Song Thrush, Snipe, Sparrowhawk, Starling, Stonechat, teal, Tufted Duck, Turnstone, Water Rail, Wigeon, Wood Pigeon, Yellowhammer.
