British Garden Birds
All NEW! Spotting and identifying the birds in our gardens, parks and countryside is a wonderful way to encourage children in a love of nature. Listening to a blackbird singing in the morning in spring can be pure joy - and who can resist a cheeky robin on the bird table in winter, its red breast drawing the eye!
For this collection of resources, we've chosen 20 common British garden birds: the blackbird, blue tit, carrion crow, chaffinch, coal tit, collared dove, dunnock, goldcrest, goldfinch, great spotted woodpecker, great tit, greenfinch, house sparrow, jay, long-tailed tit, magpie, robin, starling, wood pigeon and wren. Of course many of them can be found outside Britain too, and we haven't covered all the birds that you might find in your garden.
