Bird Count – 11th March

Sunday 11th March was an exceptionally warm still day, perfect for coaxing raptors into the air. Several Buzzards were seen in the same thermal and an amazing sight was a ‘kettle’ of eight Common Buzzards that were joined by two Rough-legged Buzzards. Several Sparrowhawks and Kestrels and a Peregrine were also seen. The bird counts are a monthly event and are a good way of collecting data on the welfare and abundance of birds on the reserve. They are held on the second Sunday of every month. People meet at the end of Teal Close in time to set off at 07.45 and normally finish at about 11.00. If you would like to attend just turn up and join in.

Monthly Bird Count

The monthly bird count is an important activity carried out by the group and we now have a data base going back more than a decade. We do, however, still need volunteers to help carry this out. If not enough people turn up we can’t do the count. So far this has only happened twice. If you would like to come along and help, join us at the end of Teal Close at 07.45 on the second Sunday of each month. Its a good way of brushing up your identification skills and getting to know the site as you would be teamed up with a regular.

Please note: You do not have to be an expert birder to take part, this is a good way of learning your birds ID. We are usually finished by 11.00am.

Just turn up and ask for Pete Smith.
