As usual I took part in the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch this morning, and as usual the birds failed to co-operate in the allotted hour.
My stunning results were:
Blue Tit 2
House Sparrow 4
This was in spite of there being plenty of food out for them. The usual hard luck stories ensued; the Fieldfare which Lyn has been seeing all week put in a brief appearance but failed to return during the hour, and even more annoyingly, two Long-tailed Tits feeding on the tree just beyond the garden visited two minutes after the hour was up.
I noticed that psycho the Blue Tit has decided to waste another year of his life attacking his reflection in a window of the house just beyond our garden. No doubt he will carry on all spring as he did last year. Stupid bird.
