RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch

This is the second year we've taken part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, in which people across the country spend an hour some time over this weekend counting the birds they see in their gardens or in local parks.  The numbers of birds were pretty similar to last year's, 11 species compared with last years 10, and although this year we didn't see buzzard, redwing or long-tailed tit, we did see a sparrowhawk, great tits, a chaffinch and a wren.  I'm a little disappointed with the total count of only 9 house sparrows, as I know the local population is about 25. The full results will be out in March some time.
