This is the full and consise list of all the species of bird, animal, butterfly and moth, (I hope to add other insects as soon as I can figure out what they are) that I have identified as living on or visiting my patch. It includes all fly-overs and accidentals, as well as anything seen in my garden. The records run from Jan 2002 until present day (or as close as my last update), Totals so far are:

Greylag goose goose flying gif Birds - 104!
Animals - 6
Moths - 4
Butterflies - 13
Dragonflies and allies - 4

There are of course unidentified types of the above creatures but until I am able to figure out these identities they will not be included, I will however be trying to add pictures of these to this site and asking for any help that is out there, just check the Images page. There are also a large amount of plants that I am unable to add as I am not a botanist of any sort. If anyone has other siteings from the area, please feel free to drop me a line and I will add the details here.
The next to a bird means a picture is available at Ashleys bird pics they may not be of a bird actually on my patch. Or patch images on this site, all of which are taken on the patch.
