Lots of helpers for this year's Big Garden Birdwatch
We saw more types of bird than in previous years, with a total of 13 species, although this year we didn't see a Treecreeper. The highlights were three Nuthatches giving us great views - this bird clearly is boss of the feeders here; two lovely Long-tailed Tits, and three tiny Goldcrests high up in the conifers behind the feeding station. The birds were:
- Coal Tit
- Blue Tit
- Great Tit
- Long-tailed Tit
- Wood Pigeon
- Carrion Crow

We will send the result of our survey off to the RSPB so they can add it to many others that will have been done up and down the country. You can see our results from the last four years here: 2016, 2015, 2014 and 2013. The RSPB's results for last year's survey can be found here.
Thank you to everyone who came and help out with this year's count.
