    A large, long-tailed gamebird. Males have rich chestnut, golden-brown and black markings on body and tail, with a dark green head and red face wattling.

  • Blue Tit - Juvenile
    The Blue Tit is a popular garden visitor here in the UK, with vivid yellow, green and blue colors, making it easily recognized.  It's also usually the first to be attracted to feeders as they'll come readily to any nut feeder placed in a suitable spot.  In the winter they flock with other varieties of tits.  These do not migrate here in the UK, being here all year round.

  • Great-crested Grebe
    The Great-Crested Grebe is an excellent swimmer and diver, the young able to do so almost immediately after hatching.  The adults are unmistakable in summer with bright rusty colors on their head and neck.  The hatchlings are striped black and white, much like a zebra.  It is the largest grebe in europe.<br/> The species was almost hunted to extinction in the 19th century, but thanks to the RSPB, it is now a common sight.

  • Common Crane
    The Common or Eurasian Crane is a medium sized crane that ranges across the northern parts of Europe and Asia.  This bird became extinct in the UK in the 17th century, but now a smallish group are now breeding in the Norfolk broads.  This population is reported to also be on the rise.  The WWT Slimbridge is currently in the works to breed a small group of cranes in captivity with some remarkable success.  Aims are to establish this bird in good numbers here in the UK once again.

  • Bullfinch
    A finch usually located by its sad tones, the bullfinch is best looked for at woodland edges.  It has in the past been considered a pest in orchards as it favours eating buds off the trees.  But due to recent declines in numbers, this is no longer strictly the case.</br>  It's a mainly resident bird in its breeding range, with some of these birds moving a bit further south in the winter.  They are resident in the UK year round.  You will also find this bird in europe and the temperate regions of asia.

  • Blue winged Teal
    The Blue winged Teal is a small dabbling duck, where its placement is no means a certainty. The coloring is remarkably similar to the Australasian Shoveler, but genetic testing shows that its nearly identical to that of the Cinnamon Teal. Occasional visitors come to the British Isles, distinct from the local Eurasian Teals and Garganey by their yellow legs and distinct white facial marking.
