Birds and other wildlife recorded in September 2017

A quiet month – the end of summer and the migration season is not yet underway. Woodpigeon and Stock Dove: the latter is often overlooked or thought to be the former! Look out for the Green Woodpecker, often seen foraging for ants on the grass, or flying away showing its yellow rump. Robins and Wrens were seen on all visits, as were Great Tits, Blue Tits and Long-tailed Tits, often now in small parties. Listen out for those Nuthatches, frequently whistling or calling – or you may spot them making their way down a tree trunk, head first. All the common corvids were seen: Magpie, Jay, Jackdaw, Rook and Carrion Crow.

 

Please keep those records coming in – we need more information on what you have seen and heard! You may see something that you think is very common – but that doesn’t mean that someone else has recorded it.  Now it’s October – look out for the early arrival of winter thrushes – Redwings and Fieldfares. Many species move in a south westerly direction at this time of year, including those that we tend to think of as “our” residents, such as Woodpigeons.
