It is always good to help the birds in your garden.
Since 1997 many folk in Assynt have been recording the birds that visit their gardens each month. Over that time we have accumulated a vast amount of data on the birds you have seen. Lots more information, including Garden Bird Survey forms, are available on our website.
Some birds have declined such as Spotted Flycatcher, Muscicapa striata, while others have increased such as Goldfinch, Carduelis carduelis, and Great Spotted Woodpecker, Dendrocopos major.
Here are two recent garden visitors to Mark and Jan Snowden’s Garden in Lochinver.
