In recent years Long-tailed Tits have copied the hanging feeder habits of the Blue and Great Tits and now visit feeders frequently especially during cold weather.
The Yellow Wagtail (Motacilla flava) is a small passerine bird and is part of the Wagtail family (Motacillidae). It is a bird that visits us between March and September, and then it migrates for the winter to a warmer climate, south of the Sahara, Africa.
The Song Thrush (Turdus philomelos) can be seen all year round and is quite easy to identify as it is slightly smaller than the Mistle Thrush. It has even brown upperparts and buff underparts spotted brown and its underwing colour is pale yellowish-brown. Its distinctive song, which has repeated musical phrases, has frequently been referred to in poetry.
