How are peoples garden bird watch going, which is your top bird for your garden ? Mine is the Blue Tit recorded 118 times out of 126 weeks of recording followed by the Woodpigeon.
Recorded my first two Collard Doves this week in the garden since 2012 which was great to see.

Dunnock is the top bird species in my garden. The rate is 589 out of 604 weeks observed!

Lovely news with your Collared Doves Martin. March 2012 was the last time I recorded C Doves in my garden. The same year as yourself, I wonder if they are making a comeback? I will let you know if I see one (usually they are in pairs) in my garden.

A lovely bird the Dunnock to have at the top of your list, a lot of weeks observed. The Collard Dove came back to day.

How are your BTO Garden Birdwatch's going. Have any others joined the survey apart from Judith. Woody and myself?

I've just completed 2 years.

I have Jackdaw as the only 100% visitor in all the weeks I have observed, followed by Collared Dove, Starling, Chaffinch and Goldfinch on 99%.

Hi Ian,

Interesting to see your top birds - 've just got to 138 weeks on the Garden Birdwatch.

Havent got any species at 100%, top birds are rook at 98%, magpie and blackbird at 96% and then robin, jay and woodpigeon all at 95%.

At the other end of the scale are woodcock, pheasant. kestrel and chough at 0.5%.

Steve

Species that I've only seen in my garden once in the 2 years are feral pigeon, redwing, chiffchaff, lesser whitethroat, black redstart, redpoll, and lesser black back gull. Also whilst I've had plenty of house martins zooming around, only once did a pair settle in the eaves prospecting for a nest site.
