Farm bird count

Saturday 26 April 2014

this was the 109th consecutive monthly count of birds round the Preston Crowmarsh farm. 266 individuals of 28 species. Unfortunately the strength of wind probably affected numbers with hardly any singing which is required when the leaves begin to provide cover. Best birds: 3 Buzzard, 6 grey Partridge, 4 Stock Dove, 6 Swallow, 2 Whitethroat, 2 Blackcap, 3 Linnet and 3 Yellowhammer.
