Bird Survey

Last Saturday 28th January a Bird Survey was carried out on the reserve. 
Despite the poor weather conditions initially, we compiled a reasonable list of species, 30 in total. Look at the list on the board in the cabin.

However because we did not have a lot of volunteers we were not able to cover the whole reserve and so missed out a number of common species, which was a pity. 
Our next survey is on Sat 18th February and every 3rd Saturday in the month for all year. Hopefully more people will be able to come on some of these days.

You would learn more about ID of birds and take part in Citizens Science providing important information for the nationwide organisations of the RSPB and the BTO (British Trust for Ornithology); helping with the conservation of birds. Also it could be a lot of fun and meeting other like minded people!
