Birdies

Project: Great Birds of Britain

Have you ever found yourself wondering how many species of birds there are in Britain?

The British list is maintained by the British Ornithologists Union (BOU) and

currently stands at 574 species

Recently I’ve seen garden birds I’ve loved watching drop onto the red list due to a fall in numbers, and it breaks my heart. So I’ve made it my mission to hand-build a ceramic birdy in tribute to our wonderful birds, to celebrate their diversity and individuality. Who knows, I may even be able to play some part in raising awareness through the project and help people to learn more about how they can help protect them.

I’ll be updating the list on here as I go. I hope you’ll join me on the journey!
