RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch

These are my observations for this year's RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. The record sheet for common garden visitors can be downloaded from the RSPB site HERE. It is just to help with recognition and recording. It does not have to be sent in. You do not have to use their record sheet, any piece of paper will do to note down your observations.

Some of the colours may look a bit peculiar as my printer is having a bad ink colour day.

The full results for birds landing in my garden during a one hour period today were:

Starling        9
House Sparrow   6
Blackbird       5
Chaffinch       3
Wood Pigeon     3
Tree Sparrow    2
Dunnock         2
Crow            2
Jackdaw         2
Pheasant        1
Blue Tit        1
Great Tit       1
Magpie          1
Robin           1
Greenfinch      1
Collared Dove   1

As ever, some of the birds which normally arrive in larger numbers stayed out of view and some I rarely see made an appearance.


  1. More than usual Keith. I really depends on the time chosen, and the weather.

  2. I agree with Keith, John. A good list indeed. Delighted your pheasant joined in too :-)

  3. it was more varied that usual for a Birdwatch count Shirl - probably the cold weather.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
