February 2015

Age 6: Woodcock (Roger Ackroyd)
Winds and low temperatures made it difficult to get out so the total of 230 new birds of 25 species is noteworthy.

61 Blue Tits and 58 Great Tits dominated but the biggest surprise was a Woodcock at Tythebarns, where there was also a Sparrowhawk.

There were 6 Meadow Pipits from Stanwellmoor whilst 4 Blackcap came from 3 sites. Woolley Firs managed four sessions across the month, ringing 79 new birds, including a Firecrest and 10 Yellowhammer; and Black Park came up with 10 Lesser Redpoll in a winter of low numbers for this species.

Bedfont had both Bullfinch and Reed Bunting which have been scarce recently at this site.
