Yesterday’s Evening Birdwalk at Newton Burrows

This is what we like – feedback on our events! Keep it coming please 🙂

‘Hi everyone, a good time was had by all as we explored Newton Burrows this evening with scope & knowledgeable Dave! Joint efforts managed sightings of 16 species. Weather was kind even warm and company enjoyable. Not forgetting the late arrivals of Rob and Jeff to the group, having completed their mercy mission to release a sizeable grass snake from garden netting. Good result for snake & householder. both very relieved. Back to sightings, not in any specific order of merit:-
lesser black backed gull, herring gull, blackbird, fulmar, starling, carrion crow, jackdaw, magpie, wood pigeon……meadow pippit- lovely pose….swallow, mallard on the wing, house sparrow, …linnet…stunning group of three, whitethroat, song thrush, Looking forward to the next event – Sue & Diana’

Watch this space for some photos of the snake rescue by Batman and Robin (aka Rob and Geoff) mentioned in Diana’s report above!

    Sounds like I missed a good walk, but the bats in Margan were out in good numbers too. So were the midges.

    Hoefully we’ll get a dry spell on Saturday for the flower walk at Lock’s Common.

    Be warned, Batman (or is it Robin) I have many questions!
