Bird Sightings

Bird Watching is something I have always been interested in but never found time for.  In our new life we have much more time for looking at birds and I wanted to use this page to share some of the birds I have seen and either Lee or myself have managed to capture a picture of.  If we got got pictures I usually use Lee’s (his are amazing), but every bird here I have seen with my own eyes.  I am using the Merlin Bird app as recommended by some of our readers and it’s great but if you see any I got wrong please let me know.
