Bird flew?

By Hector, Special Researcher
The Royal Society for Protection of Birds (RSPB) wants British residents to count the number of birds in their garden on the weekend of 28-29th of January.

Nearly 400,000 people across the UK took part in the RSPB's Big Garden Birdwatch last year. Now in its 27th year the scheme's aim is to find out which is the UK's most common garden bird in winter as well as collecting valuable infomation on the diverse range of species that visit both country and rural gardens.

One does not have to be a bird expert, simply spend one hour counting birds in the garden. Details
The editor does wonder, since birds tend not to keep very still for very long - how one knows if one has counted a bird that will have flown off and returned within the hour - perhaps the web-site will explain ?
