British Garden Birds

(This site has moved from birds.deansfamily.com)

Photos and videos of many common British birds. There are two sets of pages here with the first set covering birds that are more typically seen in a garden and include photos of more than 50 species, many of which were taken in one suburban garden. The second set of pages cover birds that are still fairly common but which you are unlikely to see in a garden, such as waterfowl and waders, and include more than 80 further species. The navigation bar on the right will also take you to the bird feeder cam and the nest box page which also has live nest box feeds when occupied.

All the images and videos here are our own unique content. The image thumbnails expand to 1500 x 1000px and the videos are hosted on our YouTube channel.
Each video link will open in a new window and play by default in HD.

If you're trying to identify a bird that you've seen, hopefully these images will help you. Birds are ordered roughly alphabetically and we start on this page with Blackbird, Blackcap, Blue Tit, Bullfinch, Chaffinch, Chiffchaff, Coal Tit, Collared Dove, Crow and Dunnock.

New photos are also published on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/birdpics where you can upload your own bird photos as well.
