We used to have a large flock of starlings at our old house. We've moved walking distance and we get none now.
We have had a mum and three young magpies in the garden and the mum was dunking bread in the bird bath before giving it to the youngsters.
We do have a pair of collared doves too, but they are so nervous, they fly off at the smallest movement of anything.
We have one single woodpigeon we call Fred and also a permanent pair who are always trying to 'get their freak on' on top of wobbly trellis.
I have heard but not seen, a greenfinch calling and yesterday right outside the lounge a tiny bird which I suspect was a wren or a dunnock was making a hell of a racket.
