I have been here for almost nine years (it seems like a few weeks) and during that time I have seen 28 different birds actually in my garden plus another seven overhead... a Grey Heron just a few weeks ago on my neigbours roof and a Buzzard that flew just over my head below the roof-line of my house a couple of days ago.
The other bird species I have put on my list is the Tawny Owl... I have yet to see one but I hear them calling quite often at night.
... a couple of years ago I did see an adult with two youngsters for a few days but it wasn't for long.
I love to see them and they are not a pest unlike the House Mouse which I haven't seen around here.
We got the "pest controller" out but he caught nothing.
I don't have a pond so he was just passing through.
I see the odd domestic cat... I love cats but the road through the estate is quite close and I lost mine just short of a year from moving in... I still miss Billy.
I once saw a dead Badger (roadkill) just up the road but I have yet to see a Fox on the estate.
