Birds and other wildlife recorded in January 2020

Not a huge number of records were sent in this month – was it the lack of birds, or did the mud underfoot put some of us off?!  Red Kites were seen frequently, gliding majestically over the wood and the nearby houses. Woodpigeon and Stock Doves were fairly common, and the Great-Spotted Woodpeckers were seen (no Green Woodpeckers recorded this month?). The usual corvids were around: Magpie, Jackdaw, Jay, Carrion Crow and Rooks; how many nests will be in the rookery this spring? Both Blue Tit and Great Tit were seen, and Nuthatches appeared on most visits. As one might expect Wren, Robin and Blackbird were seen or heard on virtually every visit. Listen out for Mistle Thrush, an early breeder, and for Song Thrushes that have already been singing nearby for a few weeks. Finally Chaffinch, Goldfinches and Bullfinch have all been recorded.
PLEASE send in your records – even of birds that you think are really common; don’t leave it up to just two or three people!
