Starlings rule the roost


A common sight in Notts gardens - the starling

Starlings are the champions of Nottinghamshire's gardens according to a record-breaking survey by the RSPB.

More than 4000 people in the county took part in the big garden birdwatch in January providing vital information on numbers of garden birds.

Runners-up in the Nottinghamshire gardens were housesparrows and blackbirds.

The survey clearly caught he imagination of bird enthusiasts and everyone here on the BBC Nottingham website.

To find out more about what was involved have a look at our bird section which includes identification tips and images of garden birds as drawn by pupils at St. Anne's C of E (Aided) Primary School in Worksop.

Just for the record the starling was top bird 12 months ago with the housesparrow and blackbird trailing in its slipstream.

The results in full.
