I have been allocated a 2x2km square patch of ground for the BTO Bird Atlas 2007-11. My patch covers a part of Cheam and Ewell village and the majority of Nonsuch Park. I did my early winter visit today. I chose to do it for two hours. I broke my record of 25 species in one visit for Nonsuch and managed to get 26, but only just. Otherwise, I saw far less Jays (only 1) lots of Goldcrests, Blue, Great, Coal and Long-tailed Tits, a female Kestrel and many of the other usual birds. I am going to submit the record to the BTO soon.
The Bird Atlas 2007-11 is a very important survey, please consider helping the BTO visit www.birdatlas.net for details.
