In the largest participation yet of this successful survey of our garden birds, 78,066 people in Scotland took part viewing 1,527,163 birds.

Here’s the top ten for Scotland

  1. House Sparrow

This was the largest number of people participating in the Big Garden Bird Watch in the UK as a whole but there are actually fewer birds. Over the last 50 years, 40 million birds have vanished from the UK’s skies.
