Post Big Garden Birdwatch

10 mins after our big garden birdwatch, sitting down to eat lunch, we had another bird visitor. The female sparrowhawk came and landed on our birdtable. Sadly I had no camera to hand, but luckily that allowed me to watch it, as it sat there for around 5mins. Occasionally it would peer into the bush to see if there were any sparrows that had not moved away quick enough. It was pretty incredible to see and a great view as well.

Big Garden Birdwatch

Happy New Year everybody, Not been able to post much due to exams taking up much of my time. However, they are now finished, and just in time too, as the big garden birdwatch weekend dawned.
Sunday afternoon, 1.23-2.23 overcast but dry
To be honest, may as well done it for 10 mins, as thats the length of time that we actually had birds
Robin: 1
Starling: 1
Goldfinch: 1
Dunnock: 1
Blackbird: 1
House Sparrow: 23

It was a pretty acturate representation of the birds in our garden to be honest, although no collard doves showed up during the hour.
