Do you want a challenge for 2020 ? How about spotting 200 different birds this year. Head over to Bird watching magazine or click here for more details……….
So far this year I think for me it’s personally around 30 birds., and were nearly at the end of January so 200 is going to push me to the limit , but I’m going to give it a go so here are the first list of birds , ticked off the list……….
Blue Tit , Great Tit , Long-tailed Tit , Robin , Blackbird , Song Thrush , Collard Dove , Coot , Moor Hen , Mallard , Heron , Magpie , Dunnock , Chaffinch , Bullfinch , Wren , Buzzard , Nuthatch , Goldfinch , Wood Pigeon , House Sparrow , Mute Swan and Green Woodpecker.
Right , a quick bit of adding up and the totals actually 23. Not a bad effort so far and only 177 birds to go !
So here’s an update on 200. The list is now up to 55 with the addition of , Lapwing , Greylag goose , Avocet , Canada goose , Shelduck , Goldeneye , Tufted duck , Eider , Redshank , Common gull and Pied wagtail. Most of these new birds were spotted at WWT Slimbridge.
