2014 Autumn/Winter bird survey

by Rod Kebble

The monitoring group conducted its eighth annual Autumn/Winter bird survey on 10th and 15th November.

The results of the survey by transect begin here and the updated species list is shown here.

Salient points to emerge from the survey are that there were more species observed than in the past two years but fewer numbers of the more common species — except woodpigeon and jackdaw. A woodcock was seen for only the second time on a scheduled survey (though others have been sighted in Tankersford Wood at other times), while collared dove and mandarin were seen for the first time during a winter survey.
