You report on a warning from the Royal Horticultural Society about the result that the recent remarkably hot summer season has had on plants(14 October) “. Where have all the garden birds gone”? We can generally see finches, jays,”wrens, sparrows and robins in our garden, which is full of berries and “seeds at this time of year. This fall there are none. I fear the heat has eliminated a generation of little birds.”Is this an issue in other cities?Mary Julian Hackney, London Topics Birds UK weather condition Gardens Extreme weather Wildlife letters
