Bumper Birdwatch

This weekend was the 2016 Big Garden Bird Watch and I did mine on the Saturday after lunch which is usually when all the birds flock down on the feeders. I was a bit worried because visitors of the feathered kind have been a bit quiet later but I needn’t’ve worried because they put on a brilliant show.  My tally was:

4 sparrows, 2 blackbirds, 10 bluetits, 4 chaffinch, 2 great tits, 6 goldfinch, 2 collared doves, 8 long tailed tits, 2 coal tits, 5 greenfinch, 4 pheasant and 1 greater spotted woodpecker.

Other wildlife seen were the usual family of squirrels, all in a small, rural garden in North Wales among fields, trees and sheep.
