This week’s episode was originally created for International Podcast Month, September 2020, and released on their podcast feed.
Over the past year, many of us have been seeking solace in nature. As I have remained at home much of the time since the lockdowns began, my garden birds have provided interest and distraction.
In episode 96, I provide an audio portrait of the 13 bird species that regularly visited my garden during 2020, including:
- what they look like,
- how they sound, and
- some of the behaviours and interactions I've noticed.
If you live in the UK, this episode will help you to identify some of the more common birds found in our gardens and parks.
Wherever you live, I hope it will encourage you to look more closely at your own local birds, and maybe consider keeping a journal of their appearance and behaviours. Time stamps:
