22nd January 2021 – Begbrook Park, Bristol

We have found a local walk from home where we can avoid the large crowds of the local parks and more or less stick to green areas.

This morning we saw a few garden birds (blue tits, great tits, gold finches, dunnock and blackbirds) and heard lots of robins. I read recently that wrens are the most common birds in the UK; I must say that I find that surprising from the number of robins we see and hear on our local walks.

The robins are making lots of noise at the moment establishing their territories. But the noisiest and the cheeriest of all the birds we saw this morning was a song thrush. It may have been very easy to hear, and from quite some distance, but it was very difficult to get a decent view of it.
