Ggirl - i will definitely be counting - have done it every year for a decade and it always amazes me how much more you see when you stop and watch the feeders for a full hour, rather than the usual glance out of the window now and then !

Morning Archie - glad you are now fighting fit.  Another London day for me today - and might be a late one, which is a bit grim for a Friday.  Weekend forecast not great, but i now have all the things i need to sow my wildflower seeds in trays, and i can do that in the GH if necessary.  Plus bird counting from the comfort of my kitchen stool
