Birds at Filnore

Rob Collis's bird survey chart for 2014.

As you can see, some of our birds (blackbird, blue tit, crow, chaffinch, herring gull, magpie, robin, wood pigeon and wren) are there all the year round, while others have only been seen or heard once (garden warbler, great spotted woodpecker, mistle thrush, pheasant, pied wagtail) or twice (swift and whitethroat).  You can also make out the summer visitors like blackcap and chiffchaff.  Can you see any other trends?
