    • It will be interesting to see what the national bird surveys say about the numbers of birds this year. They predict that bird numbers might be lower because of the hard winter.

  1. We found some eggs today and used a bird book to identify them. They are pigeons eggs. We found them under the fir trees behind the play house.

    • In our outdoor area yesterday and today we have seen blue tits, chaffinch, magpie and pigeons. we also found a pigeon’s feather. It was white and grey. We went outdide to look at the sparrow in the nest box and we saw its head sticking out.

  2. Yes everyone would probably think there would be less because of the hard winter, but it’s quite hard to tell at the moment, we’ll have to see in the summer how many new chicks have been born.

  3. I have 5 doves their names are Bob, Jake, Ben, Jane ,Jessacure. Jake and jessacure has had two babies one died sadly. We have one left he is very playful he is black and has a white tail. he is 2 weeks old he has a very strong peck he made me bleed he likes anoying Bob. Bob is crule because he picks he,m up and puts he,m in front of is mother.

  4. in my house my family were eating dinner when more then30 birds came on the garden floor they were eating lots of worms and grass seeds that we put out and tyey all flew away at the same time beacause all the birds scared each other away.
