The Big Garden Birdwatch

 My garden sparrows 

Fieldfares from the public footpath at Worthenbury

Woodpigeon doing his best to bump up the biomass

Numbers were definitely down this year - only 29 birds in all, and 9 of those were house sparrows. Other species recorded: blue tit, long-tailed tit, coal tit, robin, wren, blackbird, woodpigeon, jackdaw. No finches, no starlings and no dunnocks, which is unusual. I wonder if other birdwatchers have found this kind of a dip?

Fabulous Amphibians to open 2016!

Do check underneath piles of garden rubbish if you're moving them at this time of year. Some little animals use them to over-winter in.
