RSPB Annual Garden Birdwatch 2015

Patrick’s Patch took part in the annual RSPB Garden Birdwatch 2015.

Early BirdThis year the Birdwatch ran on the 24th and 25th January. Gaye Lay from Fairweather’s accounts department spent an hour recording the birds in Patrick’s Patch.

The final list of birds spotted was: Pheasant, Starling, Blackbird, Common Gull, Wood Pigeon, Chaffinch, Carrion Crow, Sparrow, Blue Tit, Black Headed Gull, Collared Dove, Robin, Great Tit and Green Finch.

The gardeners in Patrick’s Patch plan to keep an ongoing list of all the birds and wildlife they see in 2015.  Please let them now if you spot something interesting in the garden and they can add it to the list.

From the RSPB website:

Our scientists will add all your sightings together with those from thousands of other gardens right across the country to find out how birds and other wildlife are doing.

Once this has all been checked and pieced together, we’ll be able to monitor trends and understand how different birds and other wildlife are faring. Then, together, we can help those in danger and find the best ways to give nature a home.

Look out for the results in March.
