Surveying Winter Thrushes
During winter, the UK is home to many thousands of resident and migrant thrushes seeking food and refuge from the cold of continental Europe. What are the key habitats for these birds? How does their distribution change over and between successive winters? What are the differences in feeding behaviour between thrush species during winter? BTO is looking to find answers to these and other questions.
Over the next two winters, BTO are conducting a national Winter Thrushes Survey. The aim is to identify the key habitats and food sources used by our passage and wintering thrush species – Blackbird, Fieldfare, Mistle Thrush, Redwing and Song Thrush.
