Twitching Challenge Round 3

Posted on Updated on

It’s time for round 3, here are the results…

  • Blue tit (sound) – 1 point.
  • Woodpigeon (sound, sight) – 2 points.
  • Chiffchaff (sound) – 1 point.
  • Magpie (sight, sound) – 2 points.
  • Green woodpecker (sight, sound) – 2 points.
  • Carrion crow (sight, sound) – 2 points.

A respectable 10 points carries on the trend of beating the previous weeks’ scores. Pretty happy with the Green woodpecker spot and managing to recognise its call, but the cacophany of different bird songs in the park is still so overwhelming it’s hard to pinpoint ones I’ve only learnt recently or am still trying to learn. I’m also happy I’ve managed to identify the blue tit by its alarm call, which is  a similar “churring” sound to the magpie’s so I’ve never managed to identify it before.
