I am also in east Dorset , like you Flolongtail, so we enjoy lots of visiting birds here. My regulars are:- dun nock, wren, nuthatches, jay, green woodpecker, coal tits, blue tits and long tail tits, robin, blackbird and all the finches. We have a lovely willow warbler that competes with the wren's song and a robin who even sings at night!
Down at Iford Meadows there is a noisy gang of field fares by the River Stour -which also has a kingfisher flashing up and down between Tesco,s and the Bridges. The forest, the harbours, the two rivers and 21 parks make Bournemouth a bird resort all year round.
