A bit later then usual I have managed to analyse the figures for 2014. It was a disappointing year for garden birds - fewer species than previous years and numbers of regular visitors well down.
The only numbers that were up were magpies and house sparrows; an encouraging little gang of sparrers who seem to have the measure of the two local cats.
Only saw the sparrowhark a couple of times - its existence obviously makes the smaller birds (up to collared dove size) warier.
No greenfinches, chaffinches, bullfinches or jackdaws. House martin numbers reduced. Winter not cold enough for fieldfare or redwing to visit from the fields.
Feeders all charged though so I'll keep watching. Robins, dunnocks and blackbirds all nesting very locally.
