Field Trip: Winter bird count – 9 January 2011

Field Trip – Sunday 9th January 2011: Winter bird count   Richard Norris

Our annual bird count took place on 9th January 2011 and nearly thirty members formed teams to scour the valley in search of as many birds as possible in the time allotted. As usual teams arrived at identical sites at different times of the day to end up with entirely different results and recent inclement weather meant some stretches of water which in past years had provided good sightings proved very sparse this year. The eventual winners were Glen & Lucy with seventy four species seen. They were duly presented with a magnificent trophy made by Alec Waller and our thanks must go to him for this. A thoroughly enjoyable day was rounded off in the evening with a meal at the Fox & Hounds where teams swapped notes and discussed the day.
