BIG GARDEN BIRDWATCH 2012

Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend.  Great big survey of garden birds throughout the UK.  Did mine this morning at 11.15. The RSPB ask you to record the largest number of one species that you see in your garden in one hour. Here’s the results of mine:

House sparrows  6     Starlings  6     Robins 2        Blue tits 2       Great tits 4    Blackbirds    4    Coal tits 2     Greenfinch 1   Magpie 1
Dunnock 4     Bullfinch 3   Starlings 5

              

   Excuse the higgleypiggly appearance of this post.  Its a while since I’ve done a proper post and have forgotten how to do it!  Am determined to get my camera and binoculars out and start walking and photographing all things wild and some things soon.

Very similar to last years garden birdwatch – no chaffinch this year although have seen them in the garden, no collared doves but again have been around, no long tails but have seen a couple recently and no brambling which I got last year.  All the others are regulars and my favourites have to be the gold and bull finches.
