Last year the Express claimed that the robin with its red breast and joyous winter song was knocked off its perch as the nation’s best-loved bird by the king-fisher.
I am so envious when I hear my friends and my hubby saying they have actually seen it, all I remember is seeing a glimpse of blue rocketing when we were birdwatching in la Camargue by a canal. Since nothing!
My other favourite bird is the heron. I have seen it about 10 times in the last 6 years since Steven and I started birdwatching!
I love the colours of this mandarin ducks,!
