That's not a typo in the title. Apparently the response to this year's RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is already looking like a record breaker, according to this report from The Independent.

Personally I saw lots of interesting things, but a Water rail running across a path in front of me and a Kingfisher were the most exciting. A Little grebe scooting along underwater beneath my feet as I stood on a bridge was also rather special, and one of these days I'll get a photo of the blighter doing so.

I was personally quite surprised to see that the enigmatic Long-tailed tit (as pictured above) climbed into the top ten last year, though it's not at all certain of a place this time around with the recent cold winter.
