RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch
RSPB website for details on how to take part. I will post our results on the blog and hopefully have a few photographs of our visitors. It will be interesting to see who is around. We have not seen any unusual birds at all this year. There is a very large and healthy sparrow family, big flock of starlings, great tits, blue tits, a couple of robins,blackbirds and a magpie which hurt it's wing early on in the Winter, and has stayed around the garden and kept warm in the greenhouse. It is flying fairly well for short distances, and always manages to evade the camera lens! Thats it really - never even seen a chaffinch. Ah well - our garden birds give us so much pleasure that they are welcome anytime, just as they are. Off to get the pencils and notepads ready. Do join in!
