RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch

Did you do the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend, and if so have you submitted your results?

I did my Big Garden Birdwatch at Pikelow Farm, my favourite place for photographing woodland birds. As soon as I was settled in the hide at one of the feeding stations, I started counting, for the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch you only need to count the maximum number of each species of bird at a time. After all how do you know (unless the birds are ringed) that the five blue tits on the feeders now are different to the five seen five minutes ago. Blue, great and long-tailed tits were almost constantly present and the occasional coal tit joined in. Finches were also enjoying the food with chaffinch, greenfinch, goldfinch, bullfinch, brambling (including this male) and siskin all present. Other species included blackbird and robin, whilst a sparrowhawk did a fly through spooking all the smaller birds.
