RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch
I have just dutifully submitted the results of a rather cold hour standing in the garden to the RSPB - and they are not really all thatr exciting. They included (in order of appearance) House, Sparrows, Starlings, Chaffinch, Blue tit, Great tit, Dunnock, Herring gull, Rook, Blackbird, Jackdaw, Robin and Collared Dove.
That was the list of birds IN my garden - the list of those seen FROM my garden was rather more impressive - but the RSPB, quite rightly, are not interested in those. They are not the purpose of the exercise...
