Big Garden Bird Count

We've kept our RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch records for the last couple of years, and now wish that we'd saved all the previous ones. Of course, our individual records are only a snapshot of one day a year for us, whereas the RSPB can see the overall picture. However, it's still quite interesting to compare one year to another. Here they are in case you're interested.
