What do you think the British National Bird should be?

We are a nation of Bird Lovers, so many enjoy watching birds in our gardens, you just have to go to any garden centre and see the huge array of bird feeders available plus all those fat bird balls and bird tables, we just love them!  Heard an interesting chat with Jilly Cooper on Radio 4 this morning discussing  her thoughts on choosing a National Bird.

Well from today you can vote for a National Bird out of a selection of 10 birds, the Barn Owl, Blackbird, Blue Tit, Hen Harrier, Kingfisher, Mute Swan, Puffin, Red Kite, Robin and Wren.  Where is the Thrush, such a lovely birdsong?  Or the Yellowhammer?

The lovely Yellowhammer

And why do we have the Puffin, how many Puffins do you see wandering around the gardens of the UK?  We have got until the 7th May to vote, so get onto the website and put your vote in  http://www.votenationalbird.com/

For those who love the idea of bird watching, we have some great cottages, all over the UK, perfect for watching our feathered friends.

Nightingale Cottage

With miles of country walks on your doorstep and Canterbury only 3 miles away you are ideally situated for a break in Kent. Also ideal for families holidaying together as it has a larger converted barn next door, Bacchus Barn, that can accommodate a further 6 people, please ask for more details. Enjoy cross country bike riding for those of a sporty inclination or take a picnic to the surrounding, or bird watch in one of the surrounding butterfly glades.


Amazing views and a swimming pool too!

Nestled deep in the Sussex countryside, this secret hideaway house provides the perfect escape from the world. We love the generous proportions and amazing use of light, while the beautiful gardens and views almost seem to be superimposed on the huge windows – you can birdwatch from the comfort of the sofa!


Cuckoos in West Sussex

Cuckoos is not far from the sea and sleeps 8

A haven of seaside peace for the family in the heart of ‘1066 Country’. Rye and Hastings are within easy reach and the famous shingle fields of Winchelsea Beach are within walking distance, ideal for watching those sea birds.
