We have reached the end of our year of concentrated garden birdwatching.  The final week  finishes on Saturday 28th December.  You may now be breathing a sigh of relief, or maybe one of disappointment!  Thank you so much for being a part of it – even if you haven’t managed to keep watch every week!

I’m not really up to speed with the data recording system, but it does look as though you can continue to record your sightings during 2020 if you would like to carry on, and we will still be able to pick up from the website what you may see in your gardens in the future.

In the New Year we will start to look at the totals of the different species recorded, compare with past surveys we have done, and with national statistics too, to see how things have been changing in the last 20 years.

I’m not sure that many villages will have quite so many records of peacocks as we seem to have!

We do hope that you have enjoyed watching your garden birds, and will continue do so in 2020.

A very Happy New Year from Henfield Birdwatch!!
