We saw this bird on the old boating lake. I have looked in all my books but can't find it.
After looking on the internet I think it maybe a Coscoroba swan but I would be gratefully if somebody would tell me what it is.
This is a new bird for my feeders in the garden.
If you look carefully at it's leg you can see it has been ringed.
I am not sure whether this bird is a Linnet or Lesser redpoll
One of the casualities of the recent weather is the owl box across the road from our house.
The fields are quite open and the wind and rain drives up across from the River Thames.
There was a dead bird and some eggs in the box but they looked like they were from last year.
