RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch Results 2015 for East Sussex

The results for the 2015 Big Garden Birdwatch were released last week, with the House Sparrow keeping the UK top spot and the top 10 remaining the same species but in a slightly different order. House Sparrows have declined by an estimated 71% from 1977 to 2008, but recent evidence suggests numbers in East Sussex have been increasing since 2010, with the county BGBW results showing a 25% increase since the turn of the decade.
