I counted birds in my garden for an hour last Sunday – as usual. Numbers were a bit lower than usual and Chaffinch and Greenfinch didn’t turn up at all. There have been very few Greenfinches around this year and my only garden records for 2022 are a few fly-overs. House Sparrow numbers were low in the critical hour, although there are plenty around usually, but two Blackcaps (M & F) did make an appearance.

Do, please, remember, actually to submit the records to the RSPB rather than leave them scribbled on that envelope. I’ve just entered mine (and there was a Robin and a Jackdaw too):

… and got this interesting peak into the national results…
