No major changes from last year and the only "new entry" are the Goldfinches which, I think, first showed up in our garden just after last year's count. We did have four at one point (two chicks last spring) but I think we're back down to two again. Nice that one single sparrow made the count as I really wasn't expecting any, sadly we don't see them often any more at all. The Greenfinch numbers don't look as bad as I'd have expected but I think that might be because we had a low count last year. Nice to have spent a whole hour watching them come and go any way, the only numbers I'm not absolutely certain of (I may have under-counted) are the tits as they're so skittish that it really is a case of in and out. Do share your experiences in the comments box if you took part, it's always interesting to see how others got on (I know Ham at the London Daily Photo just two or three miles away got a Goldcrest, Coal tits and a Tree Sparrow as well as just about all of the ones I spotted)
