Its 04th June2017 and we have had 2 visits to our new bird feeder from a pair of goldfinches and a great tit both of which we have seen a number of times over the past week which prompted us to aquire the feeder. We are off to find some seeds mentioned on your site which are a favourite of the goldfinch.

Respect for such a great birding site. The Help section is brilliant. Arrived here after googling 'wrens' as I have just watched a new visitor foraging around my back yard for over an hour(happy days haha). So much more information and detail than the RSPB site. I'll be recommending you and I'll be a regular visitor. Cheers :)

Hi we have a pair of Great Tits in box 1 with seven eggs at the last count, a pair of blue tits have built a nest in box 2 , it was completed at the end of March but so far they only appear occasionally and just enter the box and then leave almost immediately.My feeding station is still exceptionally busy with loads of gold finches and chaffinches, quite a few Siskins and Linnets. We also have Greenfinches although not as many as we had this time last year

Hi all, I began feeding the birds mainly blue tits last year. I have since put up a few nesting boxes which at present are all being investigated by their future tenants. The good part is my garden is now visited daily with huge amounts of Gold finches, Chaffinches, Greenfinches, Siskins. Wrens. Robins and the odd Bullfinch. There are easily over 100 birds per day feeding. Put out the food they enjoy and they will come in numbers. It costs me a fair bit monthly on seed but worth every penny just to watch and listen to them. It has taken time but I have now found the exact blend, mix and type of seed that they all love and come to my garden daily to feed, 50 to 100 Goldfiches feeding at a time is a colourful beautiful sight

We have a lot of crows here in Exmouth. We watched two nest in a nearby apple tree two years ago, had two offsrping. Parents noticably grey feathers. All four hung around for a year, the parents had one more, now the parents have gone, but the three offspring still hang around together. Will be interested to see what happens in Spring.People don't seem to like crows, but they're quite interesting to watch.

Hi guys, excellent website and valuable resource! This week is a crucial one for birds in Europe - there's just five days to go until a public consultation on the European Union's Birds and Habitats Directives closes and we need your readers' help. These are the laws which have so far protected some 26,000 sites around Europe for conservation (through the Natura 2000 network) and which are credited with increasing the populations of some previously at-risk species. The EU wants to review these laws, but we think they should be safeguarded, not undermined! Please help us by telling the EU to keep the laws strong and not bow to pressure for other interests! More details are available here: http://tiny.cc/naturealert Every signature counts - please help us spread the word!

Great site. I have a number of feeders in the garden hanging from trees and mixed seeds and dried meal worms on the bird table. I hang peanuts, niger seeds, sunflower hearts suet pellets and suet balls etc and noticed a new visitor today. Now identified, through your very good listings, as a male Black Cap! He was feeding on the suet pellets impregnated with insects in one of the feeders.

Absolutely loving the info and layout of this website (it is quite old school, but very clear and everything works!) Each day I come on and read a bit more because it's so interesting but for someone with basically no twitcher-knowledge it's a lot to remember! I'm sure I'll be expert in no time with help from your site. Thumbs up!

I have lots of Goldfinches around my garden, I love them. they feed mostly on the sunflower hearts but I also have niger seeds on offer. Today 2 came into the back garden which I have never seen before, they were after 'forget-me-not' flowers, i wonder if this is for nest building, as one of them flew away with a stem of flower.

Hi everyone. Had a look on this site after seeing a pair of finches in my garden this evening. They resembled the Chaffinch but had red faces. They turned out to be a pair of Goldfinches, I've never seen them before, simply stunning little birdies. I'm so glad I've found this site, I'll be using it lots now that spring is here. Morning meetings between all the species is so comical, all lining up and jockeying for position, it really is the pecking order. Blackbirds usually win.

I am just watching a Great Spotted Woodpecker that's feeding on a peanut feeder, it's fighting off about 10 other birds as well as the odd Starling. As the wind is blowing at about 25 mph they are all trying to hold on and feed. Thanks for the detail on the Great Spotted.

I absolutely love your website, I found it so helpful and the bird guide is clear and straightforward. I have recently moved into my own home and as a child was always enchanted by all the birds that nested and visited my parents garden and I wanted this for my own. Your guide explained what foods I needed to provide to attract certain birds. And the Robin that visits my garden certain loves the fruit cake I leave out for him!

Very helpful site for checking out some of the wildlife in our garden; as we are not so far from Britain it seems to be of the same type.Sadly the common sparrow has all but disappeared from our urban environment, but there is a couple of jays!
