RSPB Annual Birdwatch

January 31, 2021

Don't forget that this weekend is THE time to put aside an hour to observe what birds you have visiting your garden over a 1-hour period (you choose the time).

See RSPB Birdwatch

We decided to have 8.15-9.15am this morning, soon after it got light and when everyone was hungry after the frosty night. Food we used to encourage was wild bird seed / sunflower hearts / crushed peanuts / fatballs / dried mealworms.

Birds observed were;

Blackbird (m) 7, (f) 3

Blue Tit 2

Coal Tit 1

Collared Dove 10

Dunnock 4

Great Tit 2

Jackdaw 17

Long Tailed Tit 3

Magpie 4

Nuthatch 3

Robin 5

Wood Pigeon 11

Wren 1


These were taken at home, not on the Home Reserve - or numbers would have been much higher (and been cheating!)
