    The banning of DDT was a major influence on the recovery of the Buzzard population, along with a lot of other Birds of Prey

    Nice article here, with a very similar story to your own

    Went for a walk at work after dinner and saw two cormorants and what I think was an oyster catcher.

    The snowy weather is forcing birds into the garden

    Brambling (first ever), Great Spotted Woodpecker (second ever) and Jay (not seen in last couple of years)

    I have never ever seen this happening even though I have spent many hours watching them especially to see this spectacle

    Normally when I have a coffee in a cafe the only wildlife is a house sparrow

    Not in Brisbane Botanical Gardens
