Garden highlights last two days included the local Peregrine pair which I think is an addition (also Goosander, Fieldfare and Sparrowhawk).

Crazy two days working from home. Local walks when possible....

All the best

Hadn't noticed the lack of Peregrine on the list as a regular pair were perched on a local hospital yesterday.

Unusual that they linger till November, a flock of Starlings today and seven Mute Swans over. A little nicer, in a patch of wet woodland, one Hazel Grouse today (my first of the year on my land), plus one Black Woodpecker and several Crested Tits.

New for 'quarantine two' list:

Mute Swan
Hazel Grouse
Black Woodpecker
Starling
Crested Tit
Goldfinch

Autumn list now 30, compares to almost 150 in spring quarantine

Almost immediately after starting this thread I started regretting it ... ;)

Saying that, I've begun setting up a google docs spreadsheet which should be easy enough to check and update.

Not totally checked whether new for the list, but have seen the following from the garden since the 5th -

5th - Kestrel over, Jackdaw
6th - Common Buzzard, Redwing, Rook, Magpie, Woodpigeon
7th - Song Thrush


Apparently there's a Green-winged Teal about 20 minutes walk away so trying to motivate myself to get out there for that (and other bits) at some point ...

The link to the googledocs spreadsheet can be found >HERE<

Anyone can enter data, but please use this thread to post your sightings as usual and do mention if you edit the document. If you haven't used googledocs before don't worry about editing it - myself or someone else can. Please don't edit the formatting or delete species etc!

In the far bottom left hand corner you can toggle between 'UK' and 'Mainland Europe'. Hopefully will add the full BOU/Europe lists at a later time to see what gaps are missing.

(You will note that Mainland Europe is still a 'work in progress', as haven't gone through editing out duplicates from the various countries - I have only done Raven so far. EDIT and other corvids)


Hopefully it works, not tried this before!

I need to ask the gendarmerie whether I can continue bird prospection as part of my auto-entrpraneur work status. I don't fancy a fine but this is peak prospection time for some species...

Good idea to try... I will try and input something when I see something new! That said I have been credited with Lesser Spotted Wood which was probably Richard. I did see the red Billed Though though...

Corrected now - easy to make errors like that in a rush when transposing! I wasn't sure if names were even necessary but may be useful in keeping tabs. Plus people like to see their name up in lights (which this isn't ;) ) It won't be any problem even dividing out and putting your own french list eg in Column J if you want ...
