The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is where you give up one hour to record the highest number of each bird you see at once.
I chose to do it during 9:00am and 10:00am when the birds are just getting their breakfast.
In that hour I saw 24 Goldfinches, 2 Crows, 1 Dove, 3 Blackbirds (male and female), 1 Robin, 1 Wren, 3 Blue Tits, 2 Great tits, 2 Long tailed tits, 1 Greater spotted woodpecker, 1 Dunnock and 2 Wood pigeons.
All the birds have their own personalities, some push the other birds off the feeders, while some wait their turn.
Unfortunately I didn't manage to get a photo of the Wren.

The pair of crows come most days and wait for my mum to put food out for them. One will come and grab the food off the floor, while the other sits in the tree and shouts at it.
Last year they nested in the big oak tree in the field next to my house.
