Holy Trinity Churchyard Leverstock Green is full of wildlife, and is especially well visited by birds of all sizes, many of whom choose to nest within its walls. The birds shown below have been photographed by Barbara Le Tallec unless otherwise stated, and copyright for all the photographs rest with their photographer.
If you have taken some good quality photographs, or have drawn/painted birds whilst in the churchyard and would be happy to share them with us, then please contact me via the button at the top of the page.
To view galleries, click on the left hand photo of each strip and navigate forward when wanted.
I make no apology for including this particular run of photos as they capture the behaviour of this particular bird very well.
I spent a lot of time pouring over my "Birds of Britain and Europe" book and am fairly sure this is either Nightingale or a Thrush Nightingale. If anyone knows any different please do contact me.
This undoubtedly a Great-Tit, though they usually have yellowy-green coloured chests. I suspect therefore that this particular bird is either a juvenile or a female.
Jays, Jackdaws, Magpies,
