I’ll be sitting down to stare out at my garden for an hour next Sunday.
The feeders are filled already.
Will the usual house sparrows, collared doves, blackbirds, robin and goldfinches flock to or shun my garden in the hour of reckoning? Will I spot a wintering blackcap – I quite often do in an hour of looking even though I hardly ever do in ‘real life busyness’? Will a red kite fly over and will I decide it looked hard at my garden and count it? Will the bullfinches that have been in next-door’s garden still be around and will they visit me? Will the cold weather drive reed buntings into the garden as it did last year but not during the critical hour? Will there be a wren? A dunnock?
