RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch 2009
Surprise in the top ten
We believe this pleasant increase is because this insect-eating bird has adapted to feeding on seeds and peanuts at birdtables and from hanging feeders.
This result highlights perfectly the positive impact that our feeding and bird care can have on some birds.
Not content with putting a new bird in the top ten, 2009 has also seen a record-breaking number of you counting the birds in your garden.
Well over half a million people celebrated the 30th year of the Birdwacth with us, making this the biggest bird survey in the world.
A huge increase from humble beginnings in 1979 when just 30,000 children took part.
UK top 10 list
