Just to maybe start the ball rolling. As a GBW participant, I find that there seesm to be S.E England bias in many of the trends. Are people finding at present more variety of birds feeding in the garden feeders than normal? On today's count at 12.00hrs I 16 sparrows, 9 siskins, 11 B Tit 7 G Tit, 14 Chaffinch, 3 G.S.Woodpeckers, when normanlly it would be a handful of Tits and a few Chaffinch.
