Further to my previous post, the county by county results for the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch make for interesting reading: That's an Excel file so you'll need an appropriate spreadsheet program to open it, e.g. OpenOffice.

Though the House Sparrow was the overall champion, it only ranked third in my home county of Hertfordshire, with Blue tit and Blackbird beating it. In Essex Starlings are most numerous, Blackbirds in Norfolk. In Scotland and Northern Ireland the Chaffinch wins quite a lot of counties. The only other bird hitting the top spot is the Feral pigeon in Glasgow.

Take a look and see if the results reflect your own personal experience.
