RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2016

RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2016

It was far from an ideal day. The sky remained a stormy shade of grey and the uninviting wind proved boisterous throughout. With the rainfall teasingly sparse, many of the regular birds seemed reluctant to risk the blustery breezes, but could be found seeking shelter in the verges of the Sanctuary's woods. As such, the results of the survey were not necessarily as expected, or consistent with brighter days. Nonetheless, they were a record of natural events.
