Given how many birds I have seen since we moved here some eight weeks ago, the results are perhaps disappointing, but the entertainment provided by the resident Grey Squirrels more than made up for a (temporary) lack of birds. Typically, one of the regular Robins took up his usual position on a high perch minutes after my hour was up!
The results for my edge-of-town garden were (in alphabetical order) ...
- Blackbird - 2
- Dunnock - 1
- Swift - 6 (overhead. N.B. For this survey, these birds - and House Martins - can be counted when seen in flight since they rarely land in gardens)
The two Squirrels got a mention, since this survey includes a section on mammals. They will feature in my next post.
