Why do you think so many gardeners are also keen Big Garden Birdwatchers?
Nearly every gardener has a fascination with the wildlife in the garden. I suppose gardeners relate to birds first. The robin – whenever we’re digging or turning the soil, there’s a friendly robin looking out for worms and keeping us company! So, there’s quite a strong connection between gardeners and wildlife. And the birds are not just there for us to see but to hear as well. The music! It’s almost an orchestra playing outside while we’re tilling the soil and tending to the plants. There’s a really magical connection between gardeners and our feathered friends.
