Happy 2022 to all my readers lets hope its a great Nature Year
January (Week 1 – 4)
The month started with rain and lots of it, so to get out and about I had to be fortunate, did manage to notch up 14 species. Highlights being the Siskin, not a big flock holding about 9 birds, Common Buzzard was seen on on the brighter days, Great Spotted Woodpecker was heard contact calling, plenty of Blackbirds still about but Redwing numbers are down with only a single bird seen first week, and a few Jays putting in an appearance.
Bird List :- Blackbird, Blue Tit, Bullfinch, Buzzard, Crow, Goldcrest, Goldfinch, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Great Tit, Jackdaw, Jay, Redwing, Rook, Siskin, Woodpigeon (15) (YTD 15)
