Putnoe Wood Survey 20/10/2013

I had to squeeze the Putnoe Wood survey in on Sunday morning no matter the weather and unfortunately it wasn't any better than it had been the previous week. Heavy rain and wind was the order of the day and the birds were keeping their heads down. Highlight was the Goldcrest and of note was the absence of Blackbirds for the second month running:

Blue Tit 7
Carrion Crow 3
Goldcrest 1
Great Tit 5
Green Woodpecker 2
Jackdaw 1
Magpie 2
Robin 10
Song Thrush 1
Treecreeper 1
Woodpigeon 7
Wren 6

Total Bird Species: 12

That's the lowest species count for the 2 years I have been surveying the wood.
