December 1st 2010

I gained permission from the landowners this afternoon to check out the pheasant feeders and shooting cover between Draycote village and the River Leam and the numbers of finches and buntings using them grows as the cold spell makes its effects felt on our smaller birds. Total count from 6 areas checked were 350 Chaffinch, 240 Linnet, 80 Greenfinch, 45 Yellowhammer, 56 Brambling, 22 Reed Bunting, 15 Tree Sparrow, 12 Corn Bunting, 11 Skylark and 6 Lesser Redpoll.
