Back to Nonsuch Park: Twitching Challenge Round 4

A bit of a belated post as I’ve been busy lately (see next post!), but I headed back to my old local park to walk my mothers dogs (on 23rd March), and while I was there I though I’d do my first twitching challenge in a while. Here are the results of round 4…

  • Woodpigeon (sound, sight) – 2 points.
  • Coal tit (sight) – 1 point.
  • Magpie (sight, sound) – 2 points.
  • Green woodpecker (sight, sound) – 2 points.
  • Carrion crow (sight, sound) – 2 points.
  • Great tit (sound) – 1 point.
  • Chaffinch (sight, sound) – 2 points.
  • Ring-necked parakeet (sight, sound) – 2 points.
  • House sparrow (sight) – 1 point.
  • Robin (sight, sound) – 2 points.
  • Wren (sight) – 1 point.
  • Blackbird (sight) – 1 point.
  • Greenfinch (sound) – 1 point.
  • Great spotted woodpecker (seen, heard) – 2 points.

Total: 21 points. Not bad for an hour while walking the dogs, and not having been to Nonsuch park in a while. Although it is spring and there were a lot of birds around – I heard a lot more, but there are still a lot of bird calls I don’t know, so I guess its a sign I should be trying to learn more! Until next time…
