The Tarn

Did the first round of the BTO winter Thrushes survey around Patch area, Eltham Palace and King Johns Walk. The survey requires at least one visit per month along a pre-designated walk recording all the Thrushes and Starlings seen. Only 1 Blackbird and 1 Mistle Thrush seen today, but that reflects our summer absence of all the thrush species from the patch area. Lets hope that as the winter goes on we get a good influx of thrushes like last year. One great sighting were two separate Green woodpeckers one on King Johns Walk and one in Fairy Hill Park. Also the Canada goose / Greylag goose were back on the Tarn with this years young one after an absence of some weeks
