Nearly 90,000 people in East Anglia took part in this year’s annual RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch, the charity says.

Its figures published on Monday show in Suffolk sightings of every bird in this year’s top 10 increased on the 2014 numbers apart from the chaffinch and goldfinch.

There was no change in the top three birds seen in the county since 2014’s survey, with blackbirds retaining the top spot, with at least three seen on average in 95 per cent of gardens.

Nationally, the blackbird came third, pushed down by the house sparrow and starling, which came second and fifth respectively in Suffolk.
