Bird survey 2013
Here is Rob Collis's Filnore Woods bird survey for 2013.
We have 4 new species compared to 2012:
Pied Wagtail, Little Owl,Lesser Whitethroat, and Stock Dove,
. . . . while seven of those recorded in 2012 (see blog post dated 28/03/2012) were not noted in 2013, namely Coal Tit, Grey Heron, Mallard, Yellowhammer, Swallow, Whitethroat and Mistle Thrush.
By looking at the relative numbers and which months they occur in you can see, for example, that Fieldfares and Redwings are winter visitors, Chiffchaffs are summer visitors and Blue Tits are there all the year round.
Many thanks to Rob for his continuing efforts.
