Wintering bird survey

Thursday 9th January

Our first ecological survey of 2022 on a private estate near Hartfield. A glorious winter's day with cloudless skies, a ground frost and the mercury registering a chilly 2C. A final tally of 35 species, all of which you would expect to see in the High Weald, including Greylag Goose (4), Canada Goose (5), Egyptian Goose (2 pairs), Mallard (4), Stock Dove (2), Moorhen (1), Coot (1), Buzzard (1), Great Spotted Woodpecker (2), Green Woodpecker (2), Kestrel (1), Coal Tit (3), Marsh Tit (2), Long-tailed Tit (4), Nuthatch (6), Treecreeper (1), Mistle Thrush (1), Song Thrush (1 singing), Redwing (65) and Siskin (6).
