This weekend was the time for the Great British Birdwatch where we were asked to note down all the birds that we see at one time, in the space of one hour. They came in two’s, three’s and more, it was much easier when there were 2 pairs of eyes watching, but I think I spotted them all. I was photographing them as well as counting them, some of them were so quick, dashing in and grabbing a seed before making a quick getaway.
My list, which I will submit to the RSPB website later on, is as follows:-
Blackbird 3, Great Tit 2, Goldfinch 4, Blue tit 5, Wood Pigeon 2, Chaffinch 2, Robin 1, Dunnock 1, Long Tailed Tits 3, Greenfinch 3, Gt. Spotted Woodpecker 1, Nuthatch 2, Coal Tit 1, House Sparrow 1.
There were a few which didn’t appear, Wren, Bullfinch and Green Woodpecker, hopefully they were being counted in someone else’s garden. That was a lovely way to spend an hour on a Saturday morning.
