I got up promptly yesterday morning to take part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, "...the world's biggest bird survey, providing us with a vital snapshot of the UK's birds each winter.". So from 9:10 to 10:10 I saw (and, appropriately, tweeted the results)...
9:17am 3 blackbirds, 1 robin, 1 dunnock
9:27am 2 blue tits
9:40am 1 blackbird, 1 robin, 1 dunnock
9:44am 1 female blackbird
9:58am 1 blackbird, 1 dunnock, flock of 15 unidentified finch types (but they were next door and flew over)
10:09am 1 robin, 1 dunnock
Under the rules you record and submit the greatest number of each species that you see at one time so my results were...
2 blue tits
Birds seen in 2008
And for posterity, these are the birds we've seen in our garden in 2008:
A song thrush
And we think we had the following breeding in or near the garden: long-tailed tits, blue tits, coal tits, starlings, blackbirds, greenfinches and sparrows
Last year's results are here.
