I posted recently about the birds in my parents' garden in suburban Manchester. So I thought it was time to list the birds we regularly see or hear from the window of our flat in central Edinburgh or in the ground directly in front of our building:
lesser black backed gull
in summer we also see swifts
I recently once saw a grey heron fly by and my partner has seen some sort of bird of prey
I have heard what sounded like a blackcap singing, but that seems unlikely, it was more likely a dunnock, which has a nice song that I can never recognise unless I can see the dunnock at the time!
