Big Garden Birdwatch 2023- Share with us what you saw.

I thought I would start our anual bird count thread, a few have posted on indvidual threads.

I had quite a good count, the usual happened in that some who come regularity, never appeared. Collard dove, Pheasant, and some never came in the humbers as normal, Starling, Sparrow, Dunnock. Nevertheless here is what I had from 2.15pm-3.15 today. They were given premium seed, peanuts, sunflower hearts, Niger seed, fat balls and fresh water.

3 Blackbird, 1 Blue tit, 9 Chaffinch, 1 Dunnock, 13 Goldfinch, 1 Great tit, 2 Tree sparrow, 2 Robin, 8 Starling, 2 Woodpigeon

42 birds in total.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
