BIG GARDEN BIRDWATCH THANK-YOU
I received 15 reports from some of you who had taken part in the Great Garden Bird Watch at the end of January. Blackbirds and Wood pigeons were the most common with Great tits, House sparrows and Chaffinches appearing in many gardens. I cheated a little and put out scraps of meat on the day so I saw 2 Common gulls and 8 Black-headed gulls in my garden whilst Margot was lucky enough to have 30 Lapwings on her land.
As always not all our regular species arrived at the time of the count – even so we recorded 28 avian visitors to our gardens.
There is a rota for volunteers to help with the preparation and serving of refreshments. Please sign up at the next meeting.
There is a present requirement for at least 3 more members to join the committee/team. We meet about five times a year and administer the running of the group. Let Secretary Biff Vernon know if you would like details about joining us on the committee.
