We chose a location near to one of our wild bird covers and supplementary feed hoppers. We reasoned that we needed a few things in our favour to count our farmland birds.
|Site selected was near one of our supplementary feed hoppers.|
|Hedges, trees, wild bird cover and grass were all in close proximity.|
|Note to photographer "bigger telephoto lens required".|

Farmers often get told what is happening to the farmland bird populations by others, here's a chance to report our own findings. I hope if you have registered for the count you have a spare half an hour to join the count(early mornings are good). For me.... I'm off farming for the rest of the week!

|All done and dusted... time for a cup of tea and record our findings on line!!|
