THE GARDEN GUEST BOOK

IMG_2368

Welcome to my garden bird guest book. During 2018 I will be photographing and recording the birds that visit my back garden / yard. My aim is to attract and record as many different bird species as possible and develop / redesign the garden to make it more attractive to visiting birds. The list will be updated during the year , so why not book mark this page and revisit later to see how I’m getting on.
