Bird Watching (UK)
The results from January’s RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch have revealed a mixed picture for the UK’S garden birdlife with 15 of the top 20 species returning fewer sightings in gardens across the country than in 2018. Almost half a million people across the country took part, counting 7.5 million birds. House Sparrow held on to its number one spot while there was a decrease in garden sightings of Wrens and Long-tailed Tits, by more than 27% and 17% respectively. Populations of both may have been affected by last year’s ‘Beast from the East’.
