Wood pigeons have knocked blue tits of their perch to bag the number one spot for most common garden bird in Bromley, according to the results of a survey published yesterday.

Blue tits have fallen all the way down to fourth position. Blackbirds are the second most common garden birds and robins are third.

A new entrant into the top ten is the ring-necked parakeet.

The Garden Bird Survey was done by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds’ Bromley group.

David Hampson, the leader of the RSPB Bromley Local Group’s survey, said: “We’re lucky to live in a borough with lots of green space – gardens, parks and countryside.

Bromley’s gardens are an important habitat for our birds as they provide water, food and shelter. Our survey shows that our borough’s gardens support at least 40 different species.
