It was the weekend of the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch when people can watch garden birds and record the species that visit the garden (or local park, etc) during one hour.
On Saturday we had sleet all day and there weren't many birds about so yesterday D and I took part between 12.15 and 1.15 pm
What did we see?
Wood Pigeon x 4
Robin x 1
Blue Tit x 2
House Sparrow x 8
Magpie x 3
Goldfinch x 4
Coal Tit x 1
Blackbird x 1
Starling x 2
Collared Dove x 2
Just over the garden fence we could see a Great Tit and Carrion Crow but as they were not in the garden they weren't counted!
Mammal wise two Grey Squirrels were seen and unfortunately a cat appeared in the garden after 40 minutes which meant the birds all disappeared!
A few photos - sorry about the quality - they were through a kitchen window that needs a clean!
I hope everyone is staying safe and well.
