Bird survey results

Here you can see an alphabetical list of birds observed in or above Filnore Woods. 
Many thanks to Rob Collis for conducting surveys and compiling this list.
You can see that some birds are always with us such as Blackbirds, Blue Tits, Crows, Lesser Black-backed Gulls and Wood Pigeons, 
Blue tit
while others have been seen or heard only once, for example Yellowhammer, Spotted Flycatcher, Heron and Coal Tit. 
By surveying each month we can see when birds come and go.  Fieldfares and Redwings are only with us in the winter while Willow Warblers and Whitethroats are summer birds.

Over the years we will be able to see if numbers are going up or down.
 A feature on each of these 44 birds will follow on the blog in coming months.
Bird photos are not taken by me.
