Extra categories?


I know my garden birds quite well, as they love feeding by our window.

I'm happy to participate in Garden Birdwatch but I'd like to request the option for additional categories to record additional information for those who have chance to observe and more.

~usual daily visits

~observed weekly

~observed monthly

~observed annually

~unusual occurrences within the last 12 months.

Basically, I have daily very frequent visitors. But I think its amazing that we sometimes have a song thrush, have had a goldcrest come to the window. Also the long tailed tits only gather in late Summer and Autumn.

To record species, we need the possibility for better data, from those observing more, in addition to the standard one hour for one week.

If you look at the Facebook birdwatching groups, you'll see many are questioning validity of the simplicity of this exercise for the same reason.

We all adore our visitors
