Birds and other wildlife recorded in September 2019

Another quiet month – the birds are in post breeding moult and vulnerability – and there haven’t been many records sent in!  Please don’t leave the recording to just 2 or 3 people; it doesn’t matter if it’s something regarded as common – that doesn’t mean anyone else has recorded it! Common birds have a habit of suddenly not being common anymore – witness the House Sparrow demise in cities.

So, this month – Woodpigeons, all the common corvids: Magpie, Jackdaw, Rook (not many), Jays (quite a number on several occasions) and Carrion Crow. Small flocks of Blue and Great Tits were seen, as well as several Long-tailed Tit flocks, Nuthatches, a Chiffchaff – they occasionally overwinter in Britain, so look out for them, Wren, Blackbird, Robin and Greenfinch. 

A disappointingly short list!

A few Grey Squirrels were chattering about, and several early autumn butterflies were recorded including Large White, Speckled Wood and Meadow Brown
