Big Garden Bird Watch

With a thick coating of snow we expected a good turnout on the feeders for the RSPBs’ ‘Big Garden Bird Watch’. In our hour’s slot (09.09-10.09) we managed:

wood pigeon 2
meadow pipit 1
starling 7
robin 1
dunnock 3
blackbird 3
coal tit 1
great tit 3
blue tit 1
chaffinch 4
goldfinch 4
siskin 2
greenfinch 5
house sparrow 6
jackdaw 2
magpie 1
crow 4


Also a lesser spotted woodpecker, strictly speaking outside the hour but hey!

54 birds and 18 species, sadly no new species for the list.
