Yes, isn't it lovely? On my walk to work each day from Blackfriars Road
to Jamaica Road
, these are the (semi) regulars - Pied Wagtails, Blue Tits, Robins, Wrens, Blackbirds, Chaffinches, the occasional Thrush and Kestrel, plus Cormorants, Geese, Swans, Ducks and Coots on the river. These are just the ones I recognise, but I see and hear others in various parks and gardens around SE1 that are a complete mystery to me. I hardly ever see Sparrows though, which is shame. I'm sure I appreciate birdsong far more living in the middle of London, than I ever do when I'm in the country. It's a source of amazement that we can ever hear them singing when there's so much noise for them to battle against.
