BGB 2017 – The Results

Our first RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, held on Sunday, was a great success. An impressive nineteen bird species were identified during the hour-long event.

The complete list with the number of individuals seen was as follows:

  • Blackbird – 2
  • Blackheaded Gull – 4
  • Blue Tit – 4
  • Carrion Crow – 2
  • Chaffinch – 1
  • Coal Tit – 1
  • Goldcrest – 3
  • Goldfinch – 7
  • Great Spotted Woodpecker – 1
  • Great Tit – 2
  • Jackdaw – 2
  • Jay – 1
  • Long-tailed Tit – 4
  • Magpie – 4
  • Nuthatch – 1
  • Robin – 1
  • Song Thrush – 1
  • Waxwing – 2
  • Woodpigeon – 4

We were particularly pleased to see one of our recently installed nest-boxes being investigated by a pair of Blue Tits.

The results have been forwarded to the RSPB for their analysis and trending.

Thank you to all who took part, especially members of Knutsford Ornithological Society whose identification skills were invaluable and Terry Heath who photographing the event for us.
