UK, about 12 miles north of Bristol and 3 miles from the Severn estuary.

For January - in the garden:

Blackbird
Song Thrush
House Sparrow
Dunnock
Great Tit
Greenfinch
Chaffinch
Goldfinch (unusual this time of year)
Wood Pigeon
Collared Dove
Magpie (always 2)
Crow (usually 2, but sometimes 4)
Robin
Wren

In the field behind or the orchard opposite:

Fieldfare (it must be cold - they've usually moved on by now)
Starlings
Gulls (type uncertain)
Buzzard (just the one, feeding every day on earthworms)
Grey Heron

The birdwatching in the orchard took a back seat last week while we used the binoculars to watch 2 foxes mating - for over half an hour!
