Great Summer for Scotch Birds
The RSPB claims that Scottish garden birds have enjoyed a fantastic breeding season. A survey carried out by members of the public for the RSPB has indicated growing numbers of various common species of birds such as the robin, the blackbird and the song thrush. The RSPB said the results suggested most of the birds have been able to withstand a very cold winter followed by a wet and windy spring.
The house sparrow remained the most common species in the 2011 survey.
One bird which was recorded less frequently was the wren.
