b.g.bird watch count

hi everyone im pleased to see some of you had a good count over the weekend sat heavy rain all dayu and thunder storms yes that's what I said thunder storms sun guess what heavy rain all day no thunder storms but hail what is happening to the weather unfortunately it was so bad all the birds went into hiding I saw sun about 10am 2 collared doves 20 sparrows and 1 woodpigeon this was all in less than 5 mins the rest of the day a big fat zero I couldn't see any in the bushes not even flying over so is it worth doing a bird watch count take care every one I say it can only get better pauline
