Blue Tit with caterpillar

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 May…

  • Blackbird (5)
  • Blue Tit (2)
  • Buzzard (6)
  • Chaffinch (3)
  • Collared Dove (1)
