Birds and other wildlife recorded in November 2018
rather brief list this month: come on, everyone! Get looking.
Kites are seen regularly over the woods (2 together on the 3rd), and over the
nearby housing estate; Common Buzzards are perhaps slightly less common – though
on the 18th three were seen, and early in the month one was seen flying low in
the old wood. Woodpigeons were frequent, and both the common woodpeckers were
seen and heard – green and Great-spotted. All the common corvids were around:
Magpie, Jay, Jackdaw, Rook and Carrion Crow. A Goldcrest was heard in the
larches, and Blue, Great and Long-tailed Tits were about, the latter often in
groups, calling to each other as they flew like little arrows. Nuthatches were
seen, and Wrens. Blackbird was seen but no thrushes. Robin and Dunnock were
recorded also. Finally, three finch species: Chaffinch, Goldfinch and
grey squirrels were seen but no other mammals were reported.
