Feeding the birds for Birdwatch

At the end of January we had the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, this is the worlds largest garden survey of birds. The aim is to sit for an hour and list what birds come into your garden. Results are being entered into the survey until 17th February. The survey has run for 40 years allowing the RSPB to monitor trends. The information creates a snapshot of how birds are doing across the UK. Last year’s survey put House Sparrows top of the list.

I’m always first to say ’you can stay at ours’ and we’ve even had people to stay who we don’t even know!  It started when our friend’s daughter was getting married and we had a few of the guests to stay at ours. We hadn’t met them before, but we pitched in to help with the wedding and it was great fun. We had some lovely ladies come to stay when the National Federation of Women’s Institutes annual meeting took place in Liverpool. Two…
