    I forgot about Avocets. I've not seen them too often, but I do like to see them.

    None of us must overlook the Crow naturally.

    I like most birds save for rapacious gulls, noisy moorhens and Pita mallard. The Kingfisher is a favourite along with all birds of prey especially red kites, tawny owls and sparrow hawks.

    This a beautiful falcon; a black shaheen.

    my favourite regular garden visitor is the Nuthatch.

    peregrines and choughs are pretty cool, although I've seen neither whilst fishing. It's nice to see the spread of red kites, I went on a birdwatching holiday to Wales in the mid to late 70s when there were only 25 pairs left in the whole UK.

    On reflection - probably puffins!

    Here’s one from the other day but I was doing a bit of birdwatching not fishing.

    On the coast I am very fond of oystercatchers.

    Don't think I can pick a general favourite as we are very lucky where we live, raptors are common over the house and in the garden, peregrine, goshawk, buzzards, kites, sparrowhawk, these are the usual eye catchers.

    But when fishing, nothing brings a smile to my face like a flock of long tailed t**s working through the willows.

    Pheasant, but must be accompanied by red currant jelly.

    Although I rarely see them close up I do like seeing swifts during the summer.
    In winter, the chattering of a charm of Siskins in the alders on the Colne ...
