Seeing a pair of goldfinches by the river at Bermondsey Wall West yesterday prompts me to gather a few images of SE1 birds:

Goldfinch at Bermondsey Wall West:

Grey Wagtail in St Saviour's Dock:

Greylag Goose on the South Bank:

Chickenhawk in Tower Bridge Piazza:

Pigeon in Tower Bridge Piazza:

Cormorant at Bermondsey Wall West (golden oldie):

Send your parakeets this way!

(More bird photographs from a garden window in New Jersey)

Excellent! - some great pics there mate.

Lovely photo's but as a avid birdwatcher myself the Chickenhawk is not an English bird.

it looks more like a Redkite or another bird of prey.

perhaps it is a captive bird being used to scare off the pigeons

Great shots Mark.

I have 4 great tits, 2 blue tits, 2 blackbirds, 1 goldfinch and two extremely messy collared doves scoffing the fat balls i put out on my 5th floor balcony off TBR. Haven't managed to persuade the lone parakeet in Tanner St Grdns to visit yet (perhaps he's looking for something a bit more tropical than a lump of suet... may be a can of Lilt?)

Lovely pictures. I currently have a large wood pigeon nesting in the tree outside my window - I wonder if it's the same one as in previous years.

Would be great to know what that hawk/bird of prey is. First saw one over Potters Field and perched on St Olaves, where it was being mobbed by the crows.

Walking past Tower Of London then saw two perched on the drains coming off the battlements so fairly certain they are wild.

Think too small for red kites.........I need my mother she would have known like a shot

But terrific photos

Btw has anyone else noticed the return of starlings which at one time seemed to have vanished

yes, noticed that a flock of starlings seems to have returned to Potters Fields recently
