No messing about, here’s the result of our hour of bird watching for the Big Garden Birdwatch. We’re one of the 131866 surveys submitted so far, possibly the 131866th, since I’ve just submitted our result to the RSPB website.
- Blackbird: 3
- Blue Tit: 10
- Dunnock: 1
- Long Tailed Tit: 20
- Magpie: 2
- Robin: 2
- Wood Pigeon: 1
Now, about my Big Questions. In submitting the results of our hour long bird watch, I was neither asked on which day – either Saturday 30th or Sunday 31st, nor the time of the bird watch.
Thinking it would be different if our bird watch took place near dusk, I watched from 3.35pm to 4.35pm on Sunday. Maybe the day – Saturday or Sunday – doesn’t matter much, surely the time of day is of interest. What a missed chance to collect data.
By way of interpretation on our survey, a small flock of five long Tailed Tits, visited four times in the hour.
