Garden Birdwatching

This morning I took part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch. The idea is to watch birds in a garden or park for an hour, and count the maximum number of each species.

We had good old sparrows;

starlings, which I haven’t seen in a while;

The online counter on the RSPB website is pretty handy for submitting numbers, and the survey runs over this weekend. A very pleasant way to spend an hour indeed!
