    I have a small 20 x 30 foot rear garden and thought I would list how many birds I have seen and photographed over the last few years. I live in a small town in Dorset.
    Much to my surprise the number totals 24.

    Starling. Thrush. Night jar. Black Cap. Great Tit. Coal Tit. Blue Tit.

    Long Tailed Tit. Black Bird. Jay. Nuthatch. Woodpecker. Dunnock. Sparrow. Robin. Wren.

    Greenfinch. Goldfinch. Chaffinch. Bullfinch. Pigeon. Magpie. Crow. Wagtail.

    Off the top of my head i can count:

    Blue tit, Coal tit, Great tit, Robin, Siskin, Wren, Tree creeper, Sparrow, yellow wagtail, long tailed tit, chaffinch, greenfinch, bullfinch, goldfinch, waxwing, Blackies, jackdaw, rook, starling, woodpecker, wood pigeon, collared doves, redwing

    Plus the nightly visits of the barn owls and tawnies, and occasional visitors of buzzards, kestrel, sparrowhawk and ducks (!?!!)

    I'm sure there is a few i have missed

    We count the different visitors to our garden also and at the moment we have had 56 different species this year.............the latest newbie was yesterday 29/11/2012 and it was a Redwing............I failed to grab a picture because at the same moment I spotted the Redwing we had a Sparrowhawk attack...........luckily this time it left without capturing any birds.

    None as I have two killer catsWink

    Do have a badger set 30 metres behind the house in the undergrowth though, but it's difficult to get them to pose on sticks.

    We have kept a bird count for each house we have owned.

    Yesterday added number 35 for this one - a Brambling. Very pretty and on a feeder. Oddly despite trees and numerous feeders have never seen a Nuthatch here.
