The Big Garden Bird Watch 2018 turned out to be the best one I’ve done so far.
Despite drizzling with rain to start with, there were still plenty of birds around.
Here’s my list of the birds that actually landed in my garden between 8.30am and 9.30am
2 Doves 2 Robins
6 Jackdaws 6 House Sparrows
3 Blackbirds (1 female, 2 male) 2 Magpies
3 Great tits 4 Wood pigeons
2 Chaffinches (1 male, 1 female) 12 Long tailed tits
3 Dunnocks 8 Blue tits
1 Greater spotted woodpecker 2 Coal tits
14 species 56 Birds
As well as the birds that landed in the garden I spotted fly overs by
1 Raven 1 Cattle Egret
1 Red Kite 18 Canada Geese
The most exciting part was when a fox trotted through the garden. I think he was heading for the pond for a drink as I often find fox poo on the stones that surround the pond.
