July 2012 – Bird Survey Completed

A bird survey of Bredhurst Woods has been completed.  Carried out by BWAG member, Owen Sweeney and assisted by Larry Brooks, BWAG trustee, who visited the woods up to six times a month from March to July 2012.  They recorded 56 different bird species which is a healthy and encouraging count for the area.  Some of the highlights included Wheater, Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Skylark, Yellowhammer, Nuthatch and Tree Creeper.  It was also reported by another BWAG member that a Woodcock and Little Owl had been observed, although unfortunately these were not seen by Owen.
