Selected Peak Bird Counts – January 2017

Our counts are in for January! Good Numbers of pink footed-geese on the Reserve and in the surrounding area. Other birds of note include short-eared owls that have been seen roosting and hunting on the dunes. They can easily be spooked if you are walking in the Dunes and its important visitors keep to paths and dogs are kept on leads. (I'm sure know the drill by now!) European whitefronted geese have been seen during the beginning and middle of the month. If you have any interesting sightings please let us know.
