The RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch happens this weekend, 28th to the 30th January. It is the World’s largest wildlife survey.
Did you know, 8,262,662 birds were counted in 2016 and 519,000 people took part in the UK?
The top birds of 2016 were:
- House Sparrow
- Wood Pigeon
- Long-tailed Tit
I was pleased to see the Long-tailed Tits in the top 10 birds as they are my favourite birds. I was surprised that Robins were at number 9 and Wrens were not in the Top 10, as they are always busy little birds in our garden.
There is lots more information on the RSPB website.
Happy Bird Watching.
