I’ve been pond watching in my garden and I must admit I was quite surprised how many different bird species were flying backwards and forwards to wash (do birds wash or bath?) and drink. As an experiment I set up my miniature camera near the pond so that I could count them all. Nine different species or more???
Take a look at the footage below. I think nine different species (maybe even eleven) visited the pond to drink or wash. I’m not sure you will agree. Let me know what you think.
I will post the names of the birds “I think” I spotted in a couple of days.
Big clue… one of them was a very big, noisy black and white bully…
