garden birds

We have been recording the birds in the lane and uploading the data to the BTO birdwatch survey pretty much every week this year. We have seen 10-12 species most weeks, mainly the usual suspects with the odd waxwing or other interloper.

This morning there were two. Birds that is, not species.

A house sparrow and a blackbird singing.

Now I know the fledglings have fledged from the next on Springhill Cottage’s burglar alarm and that I forgot to replenish the feeders this week but still expected more than two. No idea where they all have gone to - and most are non-migratory.
