Garden birdwatch 2012

A good year for house sparrows, and a lucky encounter with a flock of long-tailed tits (5 visible when I counted), but most of the goldfinches were foraging somewhere else, and the usual song-thrush didn’t appear, probably for the same reason.

  1. Good for you in counting your garden birds but do you note your birds on other days. Personally, I subscribe to the BTO BirdTrack project which is a good thing to get involved with too.

  2. Thanks, Tony. Good idea to count more often, (would have to be weekends except for listening out for tawny owls); one day I’ll get a bit better organised.
    Saw the comment on Dendrocopos major on your blog: I heard one drumming in East Hagbourne on 22 Jan – only a few days before the mean 28 Jan you mention.
