That's quite a list Freebird. Parakeets as in the green ones? We used to watch a flock of them over the park near where we lived in the SE.

Yes indeed, the green ones. Noisy buggers they are too, and destructive, like all the parrot family. Very beautiful to look at though, but I shan't miss them when we move.

My FIL in Welwyn Garden City now has a flock of green parakeets moved in. It does look quite surprising at first sight, but they seem to like it here, so I think we will have to learn to live with them. If they spread as quickly as the re-introduced red kites, they'll soon be everywhere.

My watch is done in bits, not a solid hour and can go over a couple of days.

This year I submitted: Blackbird 3, Crow 3, House sparrow 3, Collared dove 2, Wood pigeon 2, Robin 2, Great tit 2, Bluetit 2, Coal tit 1, Starling 1, Dunnock 1, Greenfinch 1, Goldfinch 1, Chaffinch 1, Nuthatch 1

I also heard a song thrush but didn't count it as I couldn't, for the life of me, spot where it was.

I completely missed ant publicity for the bird watch so didn't know it had been. I could, as always, send a list without even looking out of the window as my birds are very consistent in breeds and numbers.
When I do it I just leave a note pad on the windowsill and record what I see at various times when passing. My garden birds are unlikely to be counted by anyone else as I have no near neighbours.
I was pleased to see a nuthatch yesterday, the cold, snowy weather must have brought it out of hiding. I was afraid they (I usually have 2) had succumbed to the hot, dry summer.
