Episode 42: top garden birds in UK and NL part 2



This show we’re talking about garden birds. Part 2.
In this edition:

  • Attracting garden birds: what can gardeners do?
  • How is the most seen species in UK gardens, the house sparrow, doing in The Netherlands?
  • Which species is most seen by gardeners in The Netherlands?
  • And how about about birdwatch numbers in 2018.
    On rank 2 we see a remarkable difference between the two countries.

Video: in hot summers you might spot house sparrows tumbling in the dust.
That’s a way to get rid of mites and other unwanted creatures.
The birds tussle to get the best spots.


We’re on the lookout for English speaking guests for our shows.
