Ireland’s Top 10 + garden birds introduces you to ten species you are most likely to see in your garden. It is based on results from The Garden Bird Survey, organised by BirdWatch Ireland, which runs every winter, over a thirteen-week period from the end of November to February. A grand total of over 110 species have been recorded in Irish gardens, with 65 per cent of gardens hosting up to 25 species. Large rural gardens attract the most number of species though suburban gardens compete very well and are by far the most popular and widespread garden type.
