29-1-11, Fradley Junction Nature Reserve.

Myself and the ecologist from British Waterways, West Midlands decided to do the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch at a couple of reservoirs. To be honest it was not properly organised, last minute and all that. I had one person turn up to do the survey, one more than West Midlands, ha ha. The results were as follows:
Blue Tit 3
Blackbird 4
Coal Tit 2
Chaffinch 4
Great Tit 2
Wood Pigeon 4
Dunnock 1
Mallard 4 (flew over)
Robin 2
Nuthatch 1
Carrion Crow 2 (flew over)
Magpie 1
Wren 2
Black-headed Gull 2 (flew over)

A rtather dissapointing hour if I was honest but enjoyable. The birds were very skittish, possibly not happy that two chaps were sitting on the nearby bench watching them. I have plans to build a scrfeen and put some piles of dead wood near to the feeders so the birds have some cover to escape from Mr or Mrs Sparrowhawk.
