Poor weather hit garden birds in 2015
Poor weather hit garden birds in 201522 Mar 2016
The Garden BirdWatch 2015 annual results are out and show an interesting story for some of our more common garden birds, with Blue Tit, Great Tit and Blackbird numbers all well below average during the second half of 2015. It is thought that these results were due to a poor breeding season, which was caused by cold, wet weather in the spring, resulting in fewer juvenile birds. Explore the year in more detail by viewing the results for individual species.
