I’m number three!

The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is a fantastic example of citizen science in action.

Every January, large numbers of people across the UK take an hour to count the birds that come to visit their gardens. The top 10 sightings for 2016 were:

  1. House sparrow
  2. Starling
  3. Blue tit
  4. Blackbird
  5. Woodpigeon
  6. Goldfinch
  7. Chaffinch
  8. Great tit
  9. Robin
  10. Long-tailed tit

This particular blue tit was spotted on a wall in Glasgow’s Merchant City.
