What happens if the bird never actually had time to use the garden but only died there ? and then where the gardens only use was to bury it there?. Its a tricky one to answer so over to you Philip.

The count is about the birds that use your garden. Birds can use a garden in all sorts of ways. If it happens to use it to die then it still gets counted.

It was alive and in the GBS when trapped - no different from you seeing a bird in the GBS and then the cat eating it!

I one traps a Myna bird and disposes of it. Does it appear on the GBS Chart as a one or a zero?
