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.
