bird life in the allotment

The allotments are a very good area for bird life, you have the common species and a few different ones

Seen over past few days

2 Wrens - one juvenile - they make a lot of noise for such a small bird
A robin that thinks that I ought not be in his territory!
A chiffchaff somewhere - heard not seen, on migration
2 Long-tailed Tits,
Blue Tit
Coal Tit
Around also Woodpigeons, jackdaws, swallows, goldfinches

Over past few years we have had flyovers from a heron (used to be regular morning and night to and from feeding ground), red kite (one of a number released from Harewood a few years ago), cuckoo, curlew, sparrowhawk, ducks, lapwings among others. Linnets and thrushes visit at various times.
