ECO ELING BIRDWATCH…
ECO ELING BIRDWATCH
I have been planning to organise a bird watching survey in the Eling area, in support of the "Eco-Eling Project" for some time now.
Unfortunately, the various Covid-19 restrictions have made it a bit tricky and I have concluded that it is probably best not to organise anything that involves people gathering together.
So, just for this year, can I suggest that over the next week, if you can spend a two hour period, spotting birds anywhere you like in the Eling area, you record all the different species you see – even better if you can a nice photograph or two.
Please send me a list of all the birds you see, either via Facebook or e-mail : email@example.com
I would be delighted to compile a full list of all the birds seen and publish some pictures on Facebook.
I took this shot today, whilst out for a walk near Winchester Viaduct. It is one of my favourites, a long tailed tit.
Thank you, in anticipation of your support.

UNDERMINING RESTRICTIONS A most unexpected development…. when you look across social media and TV / Radio interviews and press articles, the politicians rebelling against government restrictions intended to slow the spread of the virus are mostly Conservative back bench MP's. I cannot recall many instances of Labour or Lib Dem politicians refusing to go along…
BUTTERFLY COUNT The Annual Butterfly Count received a lot of publicity this year, which is good, along with the number of people who took part in the exercise. The overall headline seems to be a reduction in most species of butterflies but (as always) the detail is much more important. Having everybody count at one…
FERAL BIRDS There has been a large family of Feral pigeons that live in and around the bridges at Redbridge for as long as I can remember. They often like to sunbathe on the roof of nearby buildings. Interbreeding means that there are also quite a lot of interesting colour variations.
