Our unofficial January garden bird count.

As I mentioned in my previous post, w completely forgot about the RSPB Garden Bird Count at the end of last month.

We didn't completely forget  but our memory didn't kick in until late Sunday. We thought that the count carried on until Monday 31 January as we were sure that in previous year's the count carried through to the Monday bit it seems we were wrong. To be honest the official count weekend  probably won't record typical bird activity as the birds seemed to have been hunkering down during the gales.

As we have taken part in the Birdwatch since 2012 and I have kept my own records since then, we decided to carry our an unofficial count. I can't submit our results but at least I can record them.

  1. That’s an interesting set of data over the years. It looks like a good count, until you compare to previous years but I’m sure that was weather-related. I haven’t seen a greenfinch for years

    1. Greenfinches disappeared off our radar for a while but are making a comeback, Belinda

  2. Is that a partridge? Beautiful plumage and markings.
