Big garden birdwatch

The weekend of 26/27th January was the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, when everyone is encouraged to sit down for an hour and count the birds in their garden. Although the snow lingered, it was not quite as cold as the week before and there weren't so many birds about. I counted 14 species- including a small group of

Long-tailed tits and a pair of Robins, all of which came to the various feeders dotted around the garden. The information that the RSPB collects from this exercise is very helpful in providing trends on what is happening to various species.
