In my one hour of birdwatching, I recorded 12 birds. I identified one Robin, one Woodpigeon, one Blackbird, one Jackdaw, Two Blue Tits, Four Coal Tits and One Great Tit (at the feeder in this photo).
Some humans don’t like taking part in a government census. Maybe it’s the same with birds. Around the farm during the course of the day, I saw a hawk on a telegraph pole, ten woodpigeons in one tree, and seven magpies in a field; none of them came near the garden for the BGB.
And I can’t even blame the cat, because Bono was asleep in the kitchen. Smart move, with the temperature sitting at 2ºC . So there was no chance of a repeat of this scene from Monday.
If anyone else took part in the Big Garden Birdwatch, I would love to know what you saw. I hope you had a warmer day, with more co-operative birds.
