The Kitchen Window List – updated

The start of the football season, busy times at work and the shortening of the autumn days have restricted my blogging activities. When opportunities to get out with the camera are limited I can always rely on watching the birds in the garden. As I stood looking out at the birds visiting our feeders of thistle seed, sunflower hearts, fat balls and peanuts this morning I contemplated the number of species that we have seen from the bird hide that is our house. So, here’s the list of birds seen from a kitchen window in rural north-east Hertfordshire – 44 species and counting…
