Atrichum Angustatum in Britain - its status and conservation

Annual bird survey

Every month, Arthur Ball, a local ornithologist, visits Cleeve Common to count numbers of birds along 3 pre-set routes. At the end of the year, he compiles a comprehensive report of his findings. 

The highlights of 2017 include a Great Grey Shrike in March, probably the same bird that had been recorded in recent years because it appears in the same area each Spring and Autumn when on passage. It was seen again in October.  He also came across a Barn Owl in Wardens Wood in June.
Good numbers of Ring Ouzels and Wheatears were again sen on Spring and Autumn passage. It has been another warm year., but with two heavy snowfalls in December that resulted in low bird counts.
