|Some of my notes from this year's birdwatch.|
- At 9:25 one robin flew to the base of the bird table, while the other sang in our conifer.
- At 9:53, one was searching round the base of the bird table, while the other perched in the cotoneaster nearby.
RSPB wildlife adviser, Ben Andrew, said: “If the UK experiences a continuation of these milder temperatures, those taking part in Big Garden Birdwatch may notice their gardens quieter than in other years. The milder weather means that there is more food available in the wider countryside, with birds being less reliant on garden feeders.”
After my hour was up, I had seen 12 individuals, which is the lowest in the years that I have been doing this. On the up side, one of the local crows actually landed rather than just flying over so I was able add crow to my list for the first time.
