A cosy weekend at home for The Big Garden Birdwatch

News at Waterfords | 16/01/2019

This weekend (26th to 28th January) is the 'RSPB’s Big Garden Watch', an event which encourages the public to take part in an annual survey of birds to monitor specifies that are thriving or in decline. 

Our love of the nation’s birds has inspired both street and home names across England and Wales. 'Robin' was the most commonly featured bird in addresses for homes sold in 2017 and 2018 at 1,670 sales. However, it is addresses incorporating the names ‘wren’, followed by ‘gull’ and ‘magpie’ which have commanded the highest values, with premiums over other popular bird names. 

We decided to grab our binoculars and do some bird watching in the local area. Waterfords Fleet Branch discovered that the village of Ewshot, nestled between Farnham and Fleet, has a whole flock of feathered addresses!
