Big Garden Birdwatch..................................................................... my results

This was my garden yesterday morning.
It rained for most of last night (I am a light sleeper) and when I got up this morning the snow had all gone.

I did my garden bird count between 8 and 9 o'clock this morning.
I had nine different species visit during my watch.
Blackbirds, Woodpigeon, Dunnocks, Robins, Magpie, House Sparrow, Great Tit, Coal Tit...

 ... and a couple of Blue Tits.
I had no more than two of any species at a time... it was a bit quiet for some reason.
All are regular visitors to my garden... so nothing unusual on the day.

Snow Cat
This little Snow Cat greeted me as I returned home from work yesterday... made by my neighbours children.
It put a big smile on my face... Google "Simon's Cat" it looks just like it.

This is all that remained this morning... so I'm glad I took a picture yesterday.

I think that is the normal story when it comes to Big Garden Birdwatch Andrew, all the birds disappear! The day before I had 26 Blackbirds in the garden, on the day I did my count 'only' 13! It's almost as if they know! ;)

Hope the snow cat didn't frighten away the birds before you could count them.

I adore the snow cat... he reminds me of a cartoon cat but I can't put my finger on his name

Lovely to do that bird count and I'd be thrilled to have your regular visitors.

Yes, you've got to catch those snow cats as soon as you see them. Your neighbor kids are quite creative!
