Thanks to Dave J for doing the WeBS count - not something I would want to do or indeed could do. Thanks also to Phil A for posting it on here.


The difficulties of doing this are brought home when you realise the mobility of the birds. He notes the 1st summer med as being at the Moors. Couldn't find it there but on reaching the Flashes its beak stood out like a shining beacon in the sun. Yes sun! Then of course it went into hiding!

I gather you can't count unfledged birds in the count Fair enough.

Noted was a young coal tit and I wonder whether we should take more note in recording young birds. The GSW has brought its fledged offspring to the West Hide feeder last week. Not when I was there but shown the photo. Waching what I thought was the same male last week I note the first bird was flying off beyond the east Hide with its food, but this last bird, with or without its young, was heading into the trees by the West Hide side oft the Salwarpe path.
On all the feeders on the Moors there have been numerous young birds particularly blue tits , then great tits and the odd green finch reed bunting. On the N Moors a young robin.
Any young or old little birds in the trees I leave to others unless the sun is shining directly on them!
