Field Trips in 2020

Annual Bird Count Sunday 5th January

Co-ordinator Lin Pateman

My thanks to each and everyone for taking part; a record number of 16 teams this year. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day out in the Wensum Valley and a great start for the records to add to our growing database. As always, it was great fun meeting other teams and individuals out and about, optics at the ready, cars loaded with teams sharing and clipboards hidden up on the seats…. three cheers for all the drivers! A special mention is due to one member, David Stubbs, for his zero-carbon birding; walking and cycling around “The Raynhams” – thanks for sparing us time for a natter which enabled us to catch up with calling Water Rail and Cetti’s Warbler (and for some to have a bite of lunch). The overall species list for the day was 87. The team results were as follows:-
1st: Italian Nut Jobs……..………………………………….79
2nd Dereham Dippers…………………………………..….78
Joint 3rd

The Terrible Trio & The Red Cheeked Cake-Eaters (after a re-count) 76
