2016 Knoll Gardens – Garden Birdwatch

For several years, regular observations have been made of the birds found in the gardens. One of the ‘stars’ of Knoll birdlife is the resident pair of bullfinch. They are beautiful birds and very easy to spot, usually within 10 metres of the feeder.

The list of birds seen at Knoll between January 2013 and June 2016 is shown below:
