Bird Walk 28 March 2014

To coincide with the first Dacres Wood open day of the year I decided to do a bird walk to see what species were showing in the reserve.

The weather was grey and dry but the light was poor.  On the other hand the trees are still not in leaf which made locating bird much easier and whilst the numbers of bird species wasn’t high there were nevertheless some good sightings. The full list is as follows:

  • Stock Dove
  • Woodpigeon
  • Feral pigeon
  • Magpie
  • Carrion Crow
  • Wren
  • Blue Tit
  • Great Tit
  • Great Spotted Woodpecker
  • Green Woodpecker
  • Sparrowhawk
  • Mallard
  • Moorhen
  • Mallard
  • Heron (My first ever sighting in the reserve)
  • Herring Gull (overflying)

  1. We saw a heron at DW the following day (29 March) when Alona & I led a Lewisham Nature Walk around the reserve. At one point, it had a frog in its bill – I suspect the dead frog which is featured in one of your earlier posts. It was also seen eating some of the frogspawn – a perfect illustration of why frogs lay so much of the stuff!
