Garden Watch this weekend but we have been away, you can get the details here. Keep checking back as there will be two posts
Arrived back this afternoon, and took the time to count in the garden, but as is usally the way the birds have decided to stay away. All last week it was busy, but today there has been very few.
The Woodpigeon was here though as you would expect.
While the female Blackbird was clearing up some of the food dropped from the feeders.
The maximum number of Blue Tits in the period watched was three, a very poor turn out, the apples though were their main attraction.
Three Long-tailed Tits came through, again a very small number compared to the flocks in the teens I had in the week.
A Song Thrush was singing in a tree nearby, and two Robins squared up to each other before one backed down and flew off
So my very poor count for the afternoon was as follows:
Blue Tit - 3
Long-tailed Tit - 3
Blackbird - 4
Song Thrush -1
Woodpigeon - 2
Collared Dove -1
Goldfinch - 2
Greenfinch - 1
House Sparrow - 4
Robin - 2
Starling - 5
Lets hope this is helpful for the RSPB, but for me it was very dissappointing
