Rural garden with mix of deciduous and coniferous trees bordering arable farmland, looking towards Nature Reserve Woodland. Ellington, Cambridgeshire. Lots of sky and a few pylons always worth scanning.

Abbadia San Salvatore, Tuscany, Italy. small town at 850 metres altitude. Mostly Chestnut and Austrian Pine mixed woods around town, Beech higher up. 2nd floor flat with small covered (less sky!) at the front looking onto street and more blocks of flats. Back window looks over more flats and mixed woodland. No garden but some space in front of garage. More possibilities within the 300 metres radius we are permitted to exercise in.

Slight change of location - it is still OK to go to allotments. So we will be doing our count there given the weather :) Birmingham, UK.

Sorry to be a bit thick but is this for the whole day, or is it an hour?

Thanks,

Rich

Hi Rich

I don't think anything was set down.... I think it's for the whole day, or anytime during the day.

Here's the initial thread: https://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=387948

I can't edit my post anymore, as it's from a couple of days ago. I have noticed there is a new forum: April 5th - Self Isolating Bird Sightings, should we post there?
