This weekend the human and I did something which it said was called the big garden birdwatch for the RSPB. The rules of this activity turned out to be quite confusing. Apparrently sitting on the window sill is not appropriate even though this is the best vantage piont for viewing the feeders. likewise the roof of the bird table. Also I discovered that you dont need to catch the birds, just count them. I rarely count as I rarely need a number larger than one.
All in all it turned out not nearly as interesting as I had hoped. This is often the way with humans.
