Just finished my Breeding bird survey for this year, same two squares covered again
I have now been doing this survey for the past 6 seasons and its always interesting to compare years
Wren, Blackbird and Wheatear numbers remain steady but Twite have decreased. Collared Dove are new at Plot 2.
Although migrants are not counted in the survey, plot 2 has had a number of interesting birds this year with Red Backed Shrike, Golden Oriole, Black redstart, Grasshopper warbler, Willow Warbler, Grey Wagtail
