Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

It is almost time for the 'Big Bird Watch' in the U.K., where people watch their gardens, or some similar place, for one hour and record the number of birds that they see.

It is something that has been happening for many years and helps to show trends in bird numbers, which birds are maintaining their numbers, which are in decline and which may be increasing.

There has been a serious decline in many species!

This is a photograph of my favourite, cheeky little bird, the robin. This one looks particularly plump and full of character.

Robins do not migrate from the U.K. in winter so are ever present in winter gardens.
They are very territorial and can be heard singing long
before other garden birds begin marking their territory.
The males and females look the same so it is difficult to firmly establish which one is doing the singing.

I think during the lockdown periods, bird watching has become very important to the wellbeing of many people.

Keep safe, Bev :-)
