  • Hardhead
    The Hardhead duck, sometimes still referred to as the White eyed duck, is the only true diving duck found in Australia.  They are a common bird, and like other members of the pochard group, they feed by diving deeply for the aquatic creatures they feed off of.  As a general rule these birds avoid costal waters.
    WWT Slimbridge
  • Winter Wren
    The wren is a tiny brown bird, although it is heavier, less slim, than the even smaller goldcrest. It is dumpy, almost rounded, with a fine bill, quite long legs and toes, very short round wings and a short, narrow tail which is sometimes cocked up vertically. For such a small bird it has a remarkably loud voice. It is the commonest UK breeding bird, although it suffers declines during prolonged, severely cold winters.

  • Oystercatcher
    The Eurasian Oystercatcher, otherwise known as a Pied Oystercatcher or just Oystercatcher here in the UK is part of the oystercatcher family. Its the only one to occur here in the UK, although there are 3 subspecies of this oystercatcher in Europe and some of Asia. Its highly migratory but we are lucky enough to have this bird stay here year round. This bird as an adult has black above, white underneath, and a vividly red legs and bill which makes this striking bird really stand out amongst other waders. Despite its name, it does not primarily hunt for oysters, however its one of, if not the only wader to be able to pry open these tough creatures. What makes this bird really unique is that the shape of the bill varies depending on which type of food it specializes in. Birds that focus on molluscs have broad bill tips, where birds that specialize with unearthing worms tend to have pointed bills.

  • White Winged Crossbill
    The white winged crossbill is a resident of the pine forests of North America, with their european counterpart spread across the northern regions of Europe and Asia.  With their specialist bills, they mainly eat the seeds of pine cones.  This bird is mainly resident, but will irrupt into more southern parts of the US when the food in their ranges runs scarce.  They seem to move around more than their european counterpart, the Two Barred Crossbill.</br></br>  What is interesting about this bird is that they are opportunistic breeders, meaning they breed whenever the conditions favor it and their food sources abundant.  They have been know to breed in all 12 months of the year, according to All About Birds website.
