Birds and other wildlife recorded in November 2018

Another rather brief list this month: come on, everyone! Get looking.


Red 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 Bullfinch.


Several grey squirrels were seen but no other mammals were reported.
