RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch 2016

This last weekend saw the annual green survey where people all over the country were asked to monitor their gardens and report all the wildlife (not just birds) they observed.

Of course the weather was awful- dull. dark and damp! As a result my photographs, taken as usual from the kitchen window, are not the best!

So what did we see?

We saw-

  • 3 male bullfinches
  • 2 female bullfinches
  • 2 blue tits
  • 2 great tits
  • 2 coal tits
  • 5 goldfinch
  • 5 collared doves
  • 1 female chaffinch
  • 1 male chaffinch
  • 8 male blackbirds
  • 3/4 female bullfinches
  • 2 coal tits
  • 30 sparrows
  • 2 robins
  • 1 greenfinch
  • 2 magpies
  • 3 reed buntings
  • 1 wood pigeon
  • 8 log-tailed tits
  • 2 squirrels

This was a very quiet weekend! Goldfinch numbers are usually anywhere from 12 to 20 birds!
