Default BIG GARDEN Birdwatch

Had an hour today watching my garden and next door from my bedroom window, but when I come to download to the RSPB I could not get on, so will have to try later.
from 1.30 till 2.30

41 Starlings, 18 Blackbirds, 4 Wood pigeons, I song thrush, 3 Dunnock, 7 Blue tits, 1 Long tailed tit, 2 Robins,5 Jackdaws, 57 Black headed gulls, 1 Red Kite (over) 3 Great tits. 8 Greenfinches.

not bad for two smallish gardens. Any one else done the watch. ???

I was prompted to do mine as a little owl perched on the washing line pole, thought it would make a good start.

Two of the highlights of the hour were 7 Greenfinch (now making a reappearance in the garden) and 5 Bullfinch.The last 10 minutes went quiet after a Sparrowhawk came through but quite happy with 15 species for the hour.
