Bird survey February 2016

The monthly bird survey of our local woods took place this morning. There was a cold wind blowing but it was sunny.

Birds seen Goldcrest, Sparrowhawk, Blackbirds, Stove doves, Goldfinches, Blue tits, Great tits, Long tailed tits, Marsh tits, Coal tits, Green woodpecker, Tree creepers, Nuthatches, Wood Pigeons, Jackdaws, Crows, Magpies, Robins, Wrens, Buzzards and a Red Kite

Treecreepers and Nuthatches were the most often seen and heard today.

Most birds were on the side of the wood away from the wind.


Best part of the morning was seeing three Hares in the wood. Only saw one squirrel and I didn’t see any deer.


The gorse is in full bloom and the Bluebells are growing well. A few Primroses around in parts of the wood.
