    According to the final findings from the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch, small birds have made a comeback this year. This follows a dramatic decline in the numbers of goldcrests, tits and waxwings in 2010 after the winter of 2009-10, which was the coldest winter for years in Great Britain. This year, sightings of goldcrests – the UK’s smallest birds – have doubled whilst long-tailed tits have gone up by a third. For the eighth year in a row the house sparrow was the most spotted bird in Britain and starlings occupy the second place.
