British garden birds quiz

Postby Kay » Wed 27 Jan 2016 12:47 GMT

I was interested to see that the RSPB is doing a nationwide survey of birds in gardens and parks this weekend. I thought I knew common birds fairly well.

Oops. I'm ashamed to say I only scored 7/10.

Have a go and let us know how you get on.

PS: I might have volunteered to take part in the survey but, since my ability to recognise and correctly name some species, isn't very good I'm not so sure about joining in now.

Likewise oops - I only managed 7/10 too. Mind you, I'd never even heard of two of the birds named in the multi-choice answers - though I'd heard of one of them by a different name. (I still wouldn't have known it, though.)
