Joint Birdforum Lockdown List - April and May (1 Viewer)

dantheman

Bah humbug
As per the previous thread https://www.birdforum.net/showthread.php?t=387738 -

A joint list for folk in self-quarantine, lockdown and the like. Most of us now probably! Post your daily sightings, additions, photos even if you want. I'll keep an updated total for Europe at least initially. Starting from scratch - all birds from April 1st only.

Rules should be simple but essentially any garden birds or birds seen on local exercise only (foot or cycle) from home, no essential car journeys though sorry. Fire away ...

Dipper, Grey Wagtail, Redwing, Treecreeper. Almost threw on Goosander, but Mysticete already had it under an alias.;)

Nope keep it in. I'll do a combined list for Europe, and we can do a separate list for each other continent thereafter (it's just a nightmare trying to reconcile bird names and other issues doing a 'whole world' one initially.)

Will anyone be keeping track of an Asia list? Though, will there even be anyone else besides me?
I can try to keep track of the Asia list if no one else is. It'd be fun to combine all the lists at the end of the month and see what we get.

From my essential exercise yesterday, along the beach to the low tide line and back through the dunes. The twelve Whooper Swans on the beach at first light were unexpected. A dog walker disturbed them and they took off heading north, slowly climbing towards the Lake District fells.

Attached the list for Europe for 1st April, from garden, or on foot or cycle from home (with Tawny Owl sneaking in too).

With an additional 7 (8 if you were to count Am Herring Gull) for N America and 15 for Asia I make that 122 or so ...


Absolutely no idea what targets should be for UK, Europe or World by months end - 220, 300, 500??

If it is just yourself, keeping track of it via posts on here won't be too difficult I guess. See how it goes as the month progresses!

btw are the bird species above likely to be IOC recognised names?
