Swallow on gate in rain

Each year BirdWatch Ireland ask people to participate in a garden bird survey over the course of 13 weeks – usually running from December to February.

I’ve taken part in this survey since 2011, and so this year I thought I would keep it going throughout 2019, and also add a post on this blog each month in case any of you are interested in my bird numbers 🙂

The list below is the highest number at any one time of each species that visited my garden feeders and surrounding area during April…

  • Blackbird (5)
  • Blue Tit (2)
  • Chaffinch (4)
  • Dunnock (2)
  • Goldfinch (4)
  • Great Tit (2)
  • House Sparrow (20)
  • Jackdaw (2)
  • Linnet (2)
  • Magpie (2)
  • Pied Wagtail (1)
  • Robin (2)
  • Rook (6)
  • Song Thrush (1)
  • Starling (2)
