Big Garden Birdwatch 2016 results

Screen Shot 2016-03-31 at 10.24.37The RSPB has collated and released the results of this year’s public wildlife survey – the world’s largest. Over half a million people took part, spotting over 8m birds.

The sparrow is still in the no.1 spot ( although not in my garden), and the long-tailed tit makes its first appearance in the top 10, due to the mild winter.

My own sightings were fairly typical of where I live. Click here to download regional results to compare your garden with those around you.

Here’s what I saw, with their ranking where I live in brackets:
3 blue tit (3), wood pigeon (4), blackbird (5), collared dove (6), great tit (7), robin (8), dunnock (13), coal tit (18), nuthatch (25).
