Survey Thrushes This Winter

December 6, 2012 at 3:56 pm Leave a comment

Thrush numbers appear to be up where I live at the moment.

Blackbirds and Song Thrushes are seeking food in the garden. Redwing flocks call overhead as they speed down the valley. Mistle Thrushes aggressively defend any food source they have from other birds including the Waxwings we are now enjoying in the region. I’ve not spotted a Fieldfare yet this winter, but they’re here.

If you haven’t signed up already, then now is a good time to get involved with the Winter Thrush Survey.

The period for covering core squares is fast approaching (27 December to 10 January). We still have a few vacant core squares, and may be an excellent way of spending some time outdoors over the Christmas break.

Volunteers are also able to select their own squares for visits up to April 2013.

Visit the Winter Thrush Survey for further details, instructions and brand new video tutorials explaining how to login, select a site, mapping, editing your routes and entering and editing your data.

If you’d like to take on a core square then contact:
