Cornwall Garden Listing League 2022: We’re pleased to announce that garden listing will be back for 2022! Whether you live by the coast, have a fantastic garden and views, or just a small suburban plot with limited views of the sky and a bird feeder, take part and enjoy watching and recording your avian visitors through the seasons. You may well get some interesting surprises!
To take part please email your running total to us at: email@example.com. along with any other extras such as photos and your updates. We will be updating the table and posts below on a regular basis. You can be as competitive or not as you like – the main aim is to be motivated and enjoy your garden birding.
Essentially all birds seen or heard, in or from your garden, including those in flight (however distant). Birds seen on or above the garden do still count if you’re not actually on the property yourself, but not birds that you would have seen if you were there … but weren’t! Run to get in your garden if you see a distant Red Kite whilst returning from the shops. Feral Pigeon counts, but obvious escapes (eg Budgerigar) and domestic species don’t. You also can’t count dead birds and anything sound-recorded (nocmigging), but do let us know about them as they are still interesting to hear about, even if you can’t ‘tick’ them.
