Winter Thrushes

Next winter there will be a survey of winter thrushes. This winter, in preparation, please use BirdTrack to record as much information as possible about the Redwings and Fieldfares that you see.

For example record a count, activity and note about habitat. For over-flying birds (arriving migrants or birds moving about within the country, rather than birds making local movements to or from feeding areas) the direction of flight can be recorded too.

A measure of effort will also be very valuable so observers are asked to include a start and end time for any species lists submitted.

This will help the design and planning of the survey.
And also, please look out for the BTO raffle tickets which, this year, will raise funds to run the survey.
