Big Garden Birdwatch 2006

This morning my daughter Zoe (aged 10) took part in the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch. She sat at at her bedroom window between 8 and 9am and recorded the maximum number of each type of bird she saw at any given moment in the grounds of our flats.  I provided backup support by fetching the binoculars when they were needed and by supplying a (vegetarian) bacon sandwich at the halfway point.  The results were much as I would have expected:

Blackbird - 3

Magpie - 2

Wood pigeon - 7

Wren - 1

The 'at any given moment' condition ensures that the same bird never gets counted more than once.
