Ok so who has done the RSPB garden birdwatch this year or indeed the School Garden Bird watch?
We’ve been doing it at home for quite a few years and when I was still teaching I would encourage my classes to watch the birds and do the bird count.
I ‘m lucky enough to live in the country and be surrounded by fabulous habitats for native British birds of all sorts. We have blackbirds, thrushes, wrens, woodpeckers, nuthatches, house sparrows, dunnocks, blue, marsh and great tits as well as the long tailed tits which always make me laugh. Then there are chaffinches, goldfinches, greenfinches and occasionally bull finches, just to mention a few. Not to forget the robins and especially the one robin that often sits by my sewing window keeping me company for many hours.
